Joey’s only goal is Elsewhere. Until she meets Kit—a city boy with a wild spirit, a way with a bra hook, and a stir-crazy motorcycle named Lola. Kit is everything—every possibility and joy in the whole wide world. And then he is gone, to a place no one can pronounce and a war no one can understand. And when he returns, he is changed in every way, is a man at war with his memories, his wounds, and his government. But Joey, who now has her own mission, believes love is all they need. She has yet to realize that in a world where cities, draft cards, and bras are burning, dreams as well as tear gas are in the wind.

On the frontlines of America’s social revolution during the Vietnam War era, Joey must learn the truth about love, changing times, and her own dreams.
