In the summer of 1955, sixteen-year-old Tommy Cadigan finds himself helpless in the face of desire, especially when the man that wears the face is his high school swimming coach, a young Korean War veteran who is still recovering from receiving a "blue ticket" discharging him from the military because of his homosexuality. Unsure if his infatuation is returned, Tommy distracts himself with the attention of a local bully, who hustles older men at night besides a decrepit zoo in Boise's park. Tommy soon finds himself in the midst of a scandal that threatens to ignite the entire town...and his life will never be the same. Listen to an interview with author, Casey Charles on Montana Public Radio.
