The Impossible Fortress (Large Print / Library Binding)
A 14-year-old boy and his buddies have a plan to steal their first Playboy -- it feature's Vanna White, so of course. However plans, especially intricately plotted capers, never go down as imagined. The consequences of their actions, the secrets they uncover, and the truths they learn about themselves will change lives forever. It's the 80s, it's nerdy computer programming, it's young love and teen family drama, it's friendship, it's hilarious and sad, and totally wonderful. -- Heather Duncan, Director of Marketing & Events— Heather Duncan

“You don't have to remember the 1980s to deeply 'get' this sweet memory trip back to the decade when video games, personal computers, and mixtapes were new. But if you did come of age in the 1980s, look out. All those awkward boy/girl moments, all those songs that comprised the soundtracks of your make-out sessions and your break-ups, all the wonder of your first encounters with MS-DOS buried deep in a far corner of your memory... Jason Rekulak will bring it all back to you.”
