Jim and Bob Burgess escaped from their Maine hometown for New York City as soon as they possibly could. But their sibling dynamic is upended when their sister, Susan urgently calls them home. Her lonely teenage son, Zach, has gotten himself into a world of trouble, and Susan desperately needs their help. Elizabeth Strout has brought to life two deeply human protagonists whose struggles and triumphs will resonate.
