High school students Chris and Vyv have always been close. Since Vyv is the only punk girl and Chris is the only closeted queer kid in their small Midwestern town, they’ve often depended on each other for support. But their friendship will be put to the test when Vyv runs away and continues to communicate with Chris in secret.
All summer, as the search for Vyv mounts, Chris tries to avoid the pressure by working for Albert, an off-the-grid survivalist writer building an anarchist compound from an abandoned house and barn. At first, Albert’s projects and his philosophy provide Chris with a nascent political consciousness and a refuge from his troubled family. But as Albert’s plans for the future grow more apocalyptic, and Vyv’s e-mails gradually become more terrifying, Chris will face the complete upheaval of everything he’s ever known.
Presented by the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography as both a downloadable e-book, and a limited edition handmade print book.
