Everything changes for high-school senior Jeffry Dietz when he is ripped from the familiar camaraderie of suburbia and transplanted to a tiny, tourist-trap town in the upper Midwest. Jeffry's quiet desperation in this sluggish, pre-cable modem world doesn't stop him from making new discoveries, new friendships, and new enemies. Collected for the first time in a single volume, this highly-acclaimed teen drama of spinning wheels and racing hearts helped make Eisner-award winning writer Sean McKeever (Spider-Man Loves Mary Jane, Teen Titans) and fan-favorite artist Mike Norton (Green Arrow/Black Canary, Runaways) into mainstream comic-book mainstays. This edition also includes a brand-new story by McKeever and Norton.
