Arcadia; Lauren Groff

The story of Bit, born in a VW bug on a caravan on the way to Arcadia, a hippie commune in New York. The novel is told from his point of view when he is five years old in the growing commune, when he is fifteen in the thriving commune and then years later when he is an adult at different times including the future.  I have been waiting for this book FOREVER in my library overdrive queue and it was well worth the wait.  I really loved it and highly recommend it.  Great writing and very moving. It’s amazing to me that it was written by someone who is in their early 30’s.
