General Note:
Summary, etc.:
In Edison, New Jersey, in a museum devoted to the inventor Thomas Edison, a bitter, self-loathing sixteen-year-old girl with a deformed hand and the seemingly coolest boy in school spend the night during a snowstorm, growing close until a shameful secret threatens everything.
At school, Tegan Everly is known simply as the girl with the hand. She's usually only her outspoken self with her friend Neel, and right now they're not exactly talking. When Tegan is ambushed by her mom with a truth she can't face, she flees home in a snowstorm, finding refuge at a forgotten local attraction: the tiny Thomas Edison museum. In walks Mac Durant, a gifted athlete, is the classmate adored by all. Over one unforgettable night spent consuming antique records and corner-shop provisions, Tegan and Mac cast aside their public personas and family pressures long enough to forge an unexpectedly charged bond and reinvent themselves. Will Tegan's most shameful secret destroy what they've built? -- adapted from jacket
