The Empress of IdahoBook - 2019
A fourteen-year-old boy becomes fascinated with his neighbour's new bride in the summer of 1989. He's poised to become a starter on his high school football team, he works a part-time job at a gas station. When Beatrice Cyr arrives in Monument, Adam is distracted from everything that matters to him. He's mesmerized the second she steps out of his neighbour's truck. Soon, Beatrice finds ways to be alone with him--in the change room at Modern You, the clothing store on Second Street, at the movie theatre, in Marv's truck--and Adam is hopelessly caught between his desire and lying about her to everyone he loves.
