Teen rocker Ritchie Sudden is pretty sure his life has just jumped the shark. Except he hates being called a teen, his band doesn’t play rock, and “jumping the shark” is yet another dumb cliché. Part of Ritchie wants to drop everything and walk away. Especially the part that’s serving ninety days in a juvenile detention center. Telling the story of the year leading up to his arrest, Ritchie grabs readers by the throat before (politely) inviting them along for the (max-speed) ride. A battle of the bands looms. Dad split about five minutes before Mom’s girlfriend moved in. There’s the matter of trying to score with the dangerously hot Ravenna Woods while avoiding the dangerously huge Spence Proffer–not to mention just trying to forget what his sister, Beth, said the week before she died. This latest offering from acclaimed author Sean Beaudoin is alternately raw, razor-sharp, and genuinely hilarious.
Consumed by guilt and secrets about his twin brother’s death, Marsh Windsor is looking for a thin space–a place where the barrier between this world and the next is thin enough for a person to cross over–in hopes of setting things right.
Sixteen-year-old Parker Chipp spends his nights experiencing other people’s dreams and getting no rest, so when he discovers that new friend Mia’s dreams are different he becomes fixated on her until memory blackouts lead him to question exactly what their relationship is.
