Book Description

Hannah and her best friend Ivy are just weeks from leaving their tiny Pennsylvania town for colleges over seven hundred miles apart. Through a summer of menial jobs and aimlessly running down the clock, they're holding on to the one thing that got them through high school—each other.

One of them isn't quite ready to leave, to get on with her life. One of them kind of is, but doesn't want to say it. This is the story of how it never quite gets said.

Award-winning writer and filmmaker Adam Bertocci has been praised by Entertainment Weekly, USA Today, The New Republic, GQ, The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Back Stage, Broadway World, E!, Maxim, IGN, Wired, Film Threat and more. In this keenly observed short story, he traces the subtle shifts and fragile poetry found in the chatter of friends caught between a small town and the rest of their lives.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Admirable Tone Poem September 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a slight, (16 pages), and engaging view of two soon-to-be college freshmen who are "running down the clock" as they wait for summer to end and their new lives to begin. The insights offered up are small but significant, and the tone of wistful, yet vaguely hopeful, melancholy is pitch perfect. Every now and then the story drifts perilously close to being dismissive in a "whatever" kind of way, but the author's respect for his characters and for the odd, brief, conflicted stage they find themselves in, carries you forward. There is no great drama and there are no sudden or compelling twists or epiphanies. This is a snapshot, but it is a sharp and well composed snapshot, and, to me at least, a very nice piece of writing.
