"Smart, ironic prose...reminiscent of Dave Eggers." -Library Journal
George Flynn is the new nobody at St. Pius High School, until he falls in with the enchanting Schell sisters. Emily, an aspiring actress, is the object of his infatuation. But there's something special about her quirky younger sister, Katie, who has her own crush on George, not to mention a scathing deadpan sense of humor in the face of multiple sclerosis.
When an accident destroys their delicate balance, George and Emily find themselves searching for forgiveness yet losing each other.
With no-holds-barred honesty and razor-sharp wit, Michael J. White's debut novel explores friendship, first love, and a young man's need to come of age without coming undone.
