A STORY OF LOVE, LOSS AND LOYALTY. Being a teenager is hard enough without your mother in rehab and your slightly inept stepfather doing his best not to screw things up. But at least, Coy has Monroe. Coy is a quirky teenage boy and his best friend Monroe is a girl who is just as odd and funny and obsessed with 80âs culture as he is. So when Monroe comes down with a mysterious illness, his inner turmoil only grows. As Monroe gets sicker and Coy gets a girlfriend from another social crowd, the balance tips and Coy has to figure out how not to give up on his friend, his family, or himself. Nickel is a hilarious, heartbreaking and honest portrayal of the complicated world of being a teenager today.
âNo one has ever written about the pains of being a teenagerâphysically and psychologically, inside and outâquite like Robert Wilder in his startling debut novel. He has created indelible characters in Monroe and Coyâfunny and sad and strong and brokenâand NICKEL is about as real as it gets.
