Sean is the baby of the Yoakam family, but he’s the only real grown-up in the bunch. By the summer of 1984, it’s been seven years since his mother left, and thirteen-year-old Sean has grudgingly become accustomed to his new life. As he fixes himself root beer floats for dinner and deals with the confusing feelings he gets from admiring the Soft Knits with Flair girl in the Sears catalog, his father, Roy, and his older sister, Billie, focus on their own demons.
Six years later, in the summer of ’90, Sean is a virgin with a high school diploma and isn’t sure what comes next. Given this foundation, where can he go? But then circumstances arise that force Sean to make a choice. Will he try to correct his family’s wrongs, or will he walk away?
