In Trenton Lee Stewart's debut novel, a young man holed up in a decrepit trailer in tiny Lockers Creek, Arkansas, considers himself a failure. He has bad knees, flat tires, a dying cat, and no plans. As incessant rain becomes a brutal storm and a flood claims the countryside, he meets a fierce young woman trying to start a new life. Together they're forced to reconsider their respective pasts--confronting secrets they'd rather not disturb.
