The Myth of the American Sleepove

(The Myth of the American Sleepove)
David Robert Mitchell

This story follows four young people on the last night of summer - their final night of freedom before the new school year starts. Maggie, Rob, Claudia and Scott cross paths as they explore the suburban wonderland they inhabit in search of love and adventure - chasing first kisses, elusive crushes, popularity and parties. While looking for the iconic teenage experience, they discover the quiet moments that will later become a part of their youth they look back on with nostalgia.
