Joey is a lonely, nineteen-year-old living with his mother and brother in a truck stop town after his father's suicide. Life since graduation has been a holding pattern. That is, until he meets Franklin, a young man working at the local grocery. Franklin is everything Joey has wanted in a friend, but what are his intentions? Is their friendship really healthy, or is Franklin just a way for Joey to hurt himself? More importantly, is Franklin actually human? Is it too late for Joey to save himself? Why is Franklin so familiar? "Home is a word I don't use anymore. Home is an alien word with no meaning. It's a place far down the highway from anywhere I've ever been. It's a destination as silent and unknowable as the stars in the sky. It's has been attached to so many temporary places: rental houses on dirty streets, my grandparent's farm nine miles out of town, and even the one night that we spent in a booth at the truck stop with our things in the parking lot. We've lived in apartments and basements and a mobile home across the street from a cemetery. We borrowed trucks from neighbors to move our beds, we carried lamps and tables down Walnut and Main and every other road in town, parading our beaten-up furniture for the world to see. When Dad was here, we moved once. It was because Justin was born and there wasn't enough room for four people in our house. After Dad left, we moved by eviction or Mom's belief that the next place would be better than the last. It's been a while since we last moved, though. I think I finally managed to convince Mom that there's nowhere left in the world for us to go."
