“McLaughlin & Kraus get the nagging need for closure comically right.”–Publishers Weekly
What if your first love left town, without a word to anyone, days before graduation?
What if he went on to become one of the biggest recording stars on the planet and every song he’s famous for is about you? What if, after thirteen years of getting on with your life – walking past his face on newsstands, flipping past his image on TV, tuning him out on the radio – you get the call that he has landed back in your hometown for an MTV special two days before Christmas? What if you finally had the chance to confront him? What would you do?
Kate Hollis finds herself on the threshold of her thirtieth birthday, about to discover that the only way to embrace life as a fully-fledged, well-adjusted adult is to re-visit seventeen.
