A serialized novel by Darrell Scheidegger Jr.

Jack and Kevin live in a cute bungalow on 25th Street beneath Modesto Ash and Japanese Maples. It needs a new coat of paint, but the orange and yellow tulips in the front yard make up for it.

What’s happening here? Young women are creating an abundance of catchy, carefully crafted pop music in 2014 – that’s what is happening.
