Faced with committing suicide or kidnapping, Jack Polovsky chooses kidnapping. On his eighteenth birthday, Jack steals his newborn son, Socrates, from his ex-girlfriend. Jack's not crazy, just young and confused, and all he wants to do is to say good-bye to the grandmother he loves and spend some time with the son he's about to lose. Jack asks Tommy (his best friend) for help and then decides he wants Jess (the ex) along, too. Jack, Tommy, Jess, and Socrates set out on a road trip to Grandma's house. . . . They meet oddballs, buy a lot of diapers, narrowly escape the police (often), and banter about life, love, and growing up. All the while-along the side of the road, in rest areas, in pancake houses-Jack tells Socrates the Greek myths. Because isn't that what it all boils down to? And aren't we all trying to fly too close to the sun? Heartrending, hilarious, original, and compelling-this is a great literary/commercial debut.
