(5.00 from 1 review)
This is a book about youth, and vandalism, and first love. It’s about the sacrifices we make to get a job in a recession, and the miles we travel to find meaning in our lives. It’s about spending whole summers with your friends, wishing you were an adult, and when you do grow up, wondering how the time flew by. But mostly, it’s about a little boy named Charlie, and the story he’s about to tell.
