Author Kristin Hannah calls Jonathan Evison’s voice “pure magic,” and we couldn’t agree more. In his latest novel, a young man will come to terms with where his life is going and how to accomplish his dreams. Attention all Pacey fans: Mike Munoz has never gone after what he wants—content with waiting for something great to happen instead. But now that he’s graduated high school and is working boring odd jobs, he’s beginning to think that it’s time to change his ways. This new release is a highly-relatable read for anyone struggling to find their way in the world.
