Not On Our Shelves—Ships in 1-5 Days
Duck is 17. He will never be 18. Tomorrow is his birthday. It will never be tomorrow. Time stopped at 1:17 p.m. on a beautiful Thursday afternoon in Washington, DC. Duck is the only person moving in a world where all other living beings have been frozen into statues in an endless diorama. Duck was already in limbo, having lost his mother to cancer and his father to mental illness. Now, faced with the unimaginable, he approaches his dilemma with the eye of an anthropologist and the heart of a teenager trying to do the right thing under the strangest of circumstances. Ultimately, he realizes that while he doesn t understand the boundaries between friendship and love, that uncertain territory may be the key to restarting the world.
