James Sveck is not really happy, not really sure of his future, wonders how he fits in. This 18 year old New Yorker has the summer to figure some things out. His parents are pressuring him to go to college, but he's been obsessively looking at houses in small towns in the Midwest. College is a terrifying prospect–James doesn't understand kids his own age. He's in (not very helpful) therapy because of an incident he sees as no big deal, and he spends most of his time visiting his grandmother and secretly admiring the manager of his mother's art gallery. Join James on this journey of figuring out who he is and what's next in his amusing, but agonizing summer.
