This Xeric-awarded book features 5 short stories touching on my usual obsessions, but with the depth and flavor of YA writing/ Afterschool Specials: A fatherless boy lusts after his ailing mother's caregiver, a naive young girl gets in trouble at the mall, two High School kids from opposite sides of the tracks have a strange encounter in the bleachers, and more. This book addresses a uniquely American flavor of loneliness and desire, with recurring themes of suburban, teenage anxiety, lust, "romance", and desolation leavened with sitcom humor, all in lushly drawn full color.
Perfect bound book, 140 pages.
