At fifteen, Josh Paquette and Khadijah Silverglate-Dunn catch Josh’s father and Khad ijah’s mother kissing in a natural foods store. As both of their families fall apart, the teenagers sign a pact never to cheat on anyone, ever. They have no problem keeping the vow—until they meet again at twentyeight, both struggling with career and identit y, and both engaged to other people.
Acclaimed author Benjamin Nugent’s fiction debut is a hilarious, sad, handsomely plotted story of love and class. Stylistically adventurous but always accessible, Nugent trains a keen ear on the vernaculars of Generation Y and the baby boomers, as the young and middle-aged try to decide what parenting, background, and loyalty mean in an America struggling to redefine virtue.

A Mixed Review...
I liked this book... And I didn't. The beginning and end were really good though in the middle I was completely lost; it even felt as if it were written by different people. The beginning of the story with The Dads had me completely hooked. I was very disappointed when that story line rather vanished into thin air. There was a very confusing, aimless part about the protagonist musician. That went nowhere. Then the original story picked back up, but later in life and without the intriguing bits. This book is like witnessing a few slices of a few aimless people's lives, at times entertaining and unique and at times- why am I reading this?
