Jordan Fineman's second year of college has almost done him in. His solution is to head off for a summer of work and adventure in Alaska. All the while mental illness is setting in. A summer to remember. A tale to grow on.
This novel is a quick read, told in a conversational first person voice, that is quick to see the humor of the circumstances. In the end it has something positive to say about the most stigmatized, most human of conditions, mental illness.
