A Slipping-Down Life
Evie Decker is a shy, slightly plump teenager with a distant father and hours and hours of silence to fill.

Evie learns that Drumstrings frequently plays at a dingy roadhouse called The Unicorn. So she goes there and, with an uncharacteristically bold gesture, bursts out of her lonely shell—and into the attentive gaze of an intangible man who becomes all too real. . . .
