Abstract:

Border Baker thinks he's perfectly content in New Mexico, his home for the last three years. But when his father inherits his childhood home in Minnesota and decides to move them again, Border feels he's being held prisoner and force-fed a hometown. People in the town haven't forgotten that his dad fled to Canada rather than serve in the Army in Vietnam, and Border becomes a target of their simmering resentment. Border doesn't want to give up the streets and coffee shops of Albuquerque for church and school in rural Red Cedar. A town full of folks who know his business, a school full of teachers who notice when he's absent, and a social life centered around hockey and pizza isn't exactly what he wants. Or is it?
