Ever since Ed's uncle died his parents haven't been able to be in the same room. His best friend is after a girl more likely to end up in jail than graduate. Lately Ed's been in the bathroom every half hour. And he's lost weight. He has no clue what's wrong with him, but he's about to find out. And just like the problems in the rest of his life, there's nothing he can about it. More
Ed Devlin has problems. His parents haven't gotten along since Ed's uncle died. His father drinks too much and his mother has all but given up on her spouse. Sid, Ed's best friend, has no time for him because he's too busy chasing a girl more likely to end up in jail than at graduation. Ed is dejected and lonely and beginning to realize that he has one more issue to deal with--something is wrong with his body.
Ed constantly has to use the bathroom and he can't quench his thirst. He's lost weight and can barely sleep at night. Ed has no clue what's wrong with him and is too concerned with everything else to care. He's exhausted and hoping for his life to change.
It will change, but not in any way he imagines. Ed's life is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets any better. Just like all the other problems, this one is beyond his control. It will overwhelm him and force him to find a way through. Force him to become someone new.
