This biographical memoir set in the Midwest chronicles a boy's 13th year and the challenges he faces as he approaches puberty, the power of his sexual awakening, and the loneliness of a child living with an authoritarian, abusive father. This nostalgic trip through a simpler time of early morning paper routes and Saturday afternoon little league baseball games, follows the childhood challenges of transitioning from childhood to young adult as he learns about friendships, sex, bullying, himself, and death. This sometimes humorous and other times thought provoking story combines humor, thoughtfulness, and introspection which unfold in the context of a child carrying the heavy secret of sexual abuse.
