Smoking marijuana and cutting up in school to avoid the pain associated with his dysfunctional family, Kenny finds his life transformed by his affair with Junie, a young girl who is battling her own demons

Blackwell North Amer
Smart but scarred, Kenny Kolodny yearns to awake from the nightmare of his smashed-up family: his mother is in an institution and forever away; his father is an abusive alcoholic; his brother lives abroad. Seventeen and alone, he hangs on the periphery of his world, until he makes a passionate connection with the troubled, beautiful, fiercely independent Junie Williamson. Kenny discovers in their highly charged, intensely erotic relationship a reality - and a capacity for caring - he has not known before.
