Description

Jim Wallace used to pretend the marsh and woods around his house were their own country, Wallaçonia. It was the one place he felt normal and in charge. Now Jim is turning eighteen, and tonight he and his girlfriend Liz may finally have sex—confirming he is the “upright and sterling young man” everyone expects him to be

But tonight Jim’s neighbor, Pat Baxter, needs help in his bookstore for the holiday rush. Jim agrees, but when Mr. Baxter hires a second helper, Jim is torn between his love for Liz and other feelings he has secretly held all along. Will he leave the safety of Wallaçonia for the real world? And which real world will it be, the one with Liz or the one that beckons from the bookstore?
