“Mateo Bernard, a likable, intelligent high school student, is new to Little Rock. Cody Redan has lived there his whole life. But when they meet, they feel like they already know each other. Both funny, romantic, insightful, and sad, this moving novel brilliantly traces the landscape of late adolescence, when friendships seem eternal and love can be reborn. Cody is a unique contribution to coming-of-age literature.”
