"It doesn't matter where or when, growing up is hard to do. And for young Jack, coming of age in the small town of Far Cry in the early 1950s, the challenges are especially daunting.

Then there's LaDonna, Jack's sassy and precocious sister, whose passionate curiosity embraces everthing from the intricacies of Einsteinian physics to the mysteries of sex"--Jacket.
