Tobe Hulbert’s life sucks. He’s a recent high-school graduate living in Washington with his grandfather, working out of a vintage hot dog truck, and his only friend is his overweight 12-year-old neighbor. In the dog-days of summer, his one escape is obsessively watching videos of his fantasy girl: Monica Velour, the most famous adult film star of the 1970s.
Browsing Monica’s fan site one afternoon, Tobe discovers that she is doing a rare live appearance at a strip club in rural Indiana.

The last thing Monica needs is another complication in her life, but Tobe is determined to do whatever it takes to get close to her.
