Summary
"From bestselling and award-winning author Todd Babiak comes a disquieting and wholly absorbing story in the vein of My Absolute Darling about a fourteen-year-old boy's fascination with his neighbour's enigmatic new bride--a woman whose past is catching up with her. Summer 1989. Fourteen-year-old Adam Lisinski is a star in his small town of Monument, Colorado. He's poised to be a starter on his high school football team, even though he's only a sophomore. He has a part-time job at Eugene's Gas Stop where he works with his best friend, Simon Kinoro. Adam would see his girlfriend, Phoebe Brandt, more if he could, but he makes due with time alone at Monument Lake after her ballet lessons. His mother, Helen, euthanizes sick animals all day at the veterinary clinic. She loves him dearly, but Adam knows she worries. And then Beatrice Cyr arrives in Monument, and Adam is distracted from everything that matters to him. He's mesmerized the second she steps out of his neighbour Marv Walker's truck, and desperate to be around her even if he's confused about what she wants or where she comes from. Soon, Beatrice finds ways to be alone with him--in the change room at Modern You, the clothing store on Second Street, at the movie theatre, in Marv's truck--and Adam's hopelessly caught between wanting to be with her and lying to everyone he loves. And when Beatrice convinces Helen to quit her job and undertake an ambitious real estate venture, Adam's forced to make an impossible choice. Sparkling with moments of humour and compassion, The Empress of Idaho is a story about loyalty and friendship and adolescent desire. It's a deceptively complex, nuanced look at a boy's coming of age that will challenge readers with unsettling questions about power and consent."--
