The book takes place in the summer of 1961 in New Bremen, Minnesota and chronicles the tragic events that pulls a young boy's family apart and jump starts his transition into adulthood.
Writing with aching clarity, Krueger deftly shows that even in life’s moments of unimaginable sadness there is beauty to be found. Don’t take the title too literally, for Krueger has produced something that is anything but ordinary.
