Going Bovine by Libba Bray

Cameron is coasting through high school and life in general. The less he has to do, the better. That includes his job, school, and home.

Then he becomes sick--deathly sick. He has the human version of mad cow disease, and his life expectancy has shortened to months.

While he's in the hospital, he sees an angel Dulcie. He has two weeks to find a Dr. X, save the world, and get cured. Cameron and Gonzo, a dwarf in the same hospital room, escape the hospital to begin a road trip they'll remember for the rest of their lives. Fire-giants are entering our dimension and reeking havoc and appearing when Cameron least expects them. The Wizard of Reckoning is after Cameron, Gonzo, and Dr. X. Cameron has to face him and his disease.

A great fantasy. Glimpses at what's truly going on appear throughout the book. Many twists, turns, and unexpected humor can be found throughout the story. Lots of action, adventure, and excitement.
