"A gripping, uncanny, and queer exploration of being a boy in America, told with detail that dazzles and disturbs." ―Michelle Tea, author of Against Memoir

In this bewitching debut novel, a sensitive teen, newly arrived in Alabama, falls in love, questions his faith, and navigates a strange power. While his German parents don't know what to make of a South pining for the past, shy Max thrives in the thick heat. Taken in by the football team, he learns how to catch a spiraling ball, how to point a gun, and how to hide his innermost secrets.
