John Dufresne takes us to Requiem, Massachusetts, where Johnny's mom is driving in the breakdown lane once again. Dad is down South somewhere living his secret life. And little sister Audrey, when she's not walking her cat Deluxe in a baby stroller, spends her time locked in a closet. Johnny, meanwhile, is hell-bent on saving the family from itself.
