Annotation

Welcome to the spring of 1987 and the world of Stephen Shulevitz who, with three months of high school to go in the small town of Riverside, Nova Scotia, has just realized he's fallen in love with exactly the wrong person. As Stephen navigates his last few months before college dealing with his overly dependent mother; his distant, pot-smoking father; and his dysfunctional best friends Lana and Mark; he must decide between love and childhood friendship and between the person he is and the person he can be.
