With the end of summer closing in and a steamy Labor Day weekend looming in the town of Holton Mills, New Hampshire, thirteen-year-old Henry — lonely, friendless, not too good at sports — spends most of his time watching television, reading, and daydreaming about the soft skin and budding bodies of his female classmates.For company Henry has his long-divorced mother, Adele — a onetime dancer whose summer project was to teach him how to foxtrot- his hamster, Joe- and awkward Saturday-night outings to Friendlys with his estranged father and new stepfamily. As much as he tries, Henry knows that even with his jokes and his Husband for a Day coupon, he still cant make his emotionally fragile mother happy.

Adele has a secret that makes it hard for her to leave their house, and seems to possess an irreparably broken heart.But all that changes on the Thursday before Labor Day, when a mysterious bleeding man named Frank approaches Henry and asks for a hand. Over the next five days, Henry will learn some of lifes most valuable lessons: how to throw a baseball, the secret to perfect piecrust, the breathless pain of jealousy, the power of betrayal, and the importance of putting others — especially those we love—above ourselves.

And the knowledge that real love is worth waiting for.
