Summary, etc.:
After losing his brother, mom, and most of his friends, Aaron Stein is left with his shambolic father alone in their moldering secondhand bookstore, but just when he considers selling the store he meets new people and takes on new challenges, helping him come to terms with what he has lost and who he wants to be.
Aaron Stein's friends have gone to college and moved on with their lives, while he has been left behind in the Cascade Mountains of Washington State, running a failing bookshop with his dad, Ira. When an opportunity to sell the store arises, Aaron thinks it's his only way out. He doesn't account for Chad, a wheelchair bound optimist. Or the town's out-of-work lumberjacks taking on the failing shop as their pet project. Or Hannah, a musician who might be the kind of inevitable he's been waiting for. -- adapted from jacket
