It's June of 1965 when Wrecker enters the world. The war is raging in Vietnam, San Francisco is tripping toward flower power, and Lisa Fay, Wrecker's birth mother, is knocked nearly sideways by life as a single parent in a city she can barely manage to navigate on her own. Three years later, she's in prison, and Wrecker is left to bounce around in the system before he's shipped off to live with distant relatives in the wilds of Humboldt County, California. When he arrives he's scared and angry, exploding at the least thing, and quick to flee. The eccentric clan had come to California looking to build a community, maybe, but not a family. But from the moment Wrecker walks into Ruth's arms, a transformation begins that ripples far beyond one nearly broken, wholly remarkable boy.
