Publisher Comments:

The summer before his senior year, Jude (yes, hes named after the Beatles song) gets his first job, falls in love for the first time, and starts to break away from his parents. Judes house is kept dark, and no one talks much—its been that way since his little sister drowned in a swimming pool seven years ago when Jude was supposed to be watching her.
