Feeling trapped, Aaron works day in and day out with his dad at his family's bookstore in a small town. His mother left his dad a while back, and his brother has already moved on to his own life elsewhere. Aaron feels like he can't leave, like he is stuck with the bookstore and his dad. Is there any escape, or will this be his life? The excerpt wasn't enough to tell, but I'm curious to know how it turns out.

The story touches on on many interesting issues - books and their place in today's society, family relationships and how they bind, family businesses, and more. The introduction was interesting from the beginning.
