The Lonesome Era

A sweet, funny coming-of-age story about unrequited love, teenaged tomfoolery, death metal shows, and barf.


Camden is a cat. Camden is also crushing hard on his best buddy and all-around bad influence, Jeremiah. Young, bored, and trapped in a decomposing Rust Belt town, Camden goes along with every awful idea, every hair-brained plan, and every threat to life and limb Jeremiah can come up with. But how much longer can this go on?

With acute perception and sensitive wit, Jon Allen explores the depths of teenage yearning below the deceptively shallow details of everyday life in a powerful, page-turning coming-of-age tale.
