From Amazon: “Main character Jude spends his high school days in small town Vermont getting high with his best friend Teddy, waiting to turn 16, when he can legally drop out. When Teddy dies of an overdose on the last day of 1987, Jude is sent to live with his pot-dealer father in New York City. Jude soon falls in with a group of straight edge Hari Krishnas, where his commitment to abstinence in all forms – drugs, sex, meat – becomes an addiction itself… What results is an odyssey encompassing the age of CBGB, Hare Krishnas, ‘zines, and the emergence of AIDS.”
In other words: Everybody’s typical ’80s experience.
I’m so there. (Photo: Pacific Coast News)
