Publisher Comments:

The summer before college is a time of experimentation and growth.

Rejoicing in simple things while hiding from duplicity and complexity, John's portrayal of teenage alienation avoids sensationalism and irony. Roadtrips, drunken concerts, and late-night make-out sessions all swirl together in this beautiful, sad story.
