What seems like a series of unconnected anecdotes become the threads that bind together the story of three people, and one very unusual year at Col. Devitt Caudill Memorial High School.

He is a bright science geek, looking for his place in the universe as well as in the hallways of his school. Lynn Anderson is a gifted actress and cheerleader, seeking something to make her life meaningful in her new rural school far from the suburban life she had expected and the suburban life she feared.

    Jeff Adkins has captured the essence of what it was like growing up in a rural community in the 1970s without falling into the trap of perpetuating stereotypes of Appalachian life. His book was a comfortable read, and certainly one I could relate to coming from the same background. Reading this book was like trying on a glove that doesn't look like it will fit, but then it does. Even though there were some instances of repetitiveness, they could be ignored after getting caught up in the storyline. I found myself unable to put it down near the end when the fate of the drama team was hanging in the balance. Anyone who grew up in a rural area, or anyone who's struggled to fit in somewhere for that matter, would enjoy reading this book.
