Set in 2004, in the town of Jamesville, somewhere in the midwest, a boy of mysterious origins finds himself navigating the perilous and sometimes morally ambiguous currents in contemporary adolescent life. The circumstances of his experience intersect with those around him, and like a rock dropped into a pond, the resulting turbulence shatters the brittle facade of perceptions vs reality. Passions force everyone to either do what is right or let the world consume them.
I wrote most of the draft in 2013 during Nanowrimo, and have just a few chapters left to polish up and fill in. It is my goal to publish this book by fall of 2017.
