    Imogene is young and beautiful. She kisses like a movie star and knows everything about every film ever made. She's also dead and waiting in the Rosebud Theater for Alec Sheldon on an afternoon in 1945...Arthur Roth is a lonely kid with big ideas and a gift for attracting abuse. It isn't easy to make friends when you're the only inflatable boy in town.

    Overall

    joe hill is an exciting new author. i read "heart shaped box" to my husband while traveling, and although the graphic images were tough to read and stomach sometimes, we really loved the story and liked the 20th century touches.

    i was eager to try his short stories, and was not disappointed. pop art was an astounding story. the opening story (button boy) was riveting, and the closing story (box forts by morris) was awesome! some stories ended far too early, like the one about the mom and two boys and the geeky teenager who ran across them on the road. i guess mr hill was leaving the outcome of these up to the reader's imagination, but for a first story compilation from a new writer, these stories really read like they were written from a pen with the years of experience like his father!

    i did get tired of really sad, life-beaten boys and girls.

    by the way, i thought the reader did well voicing teenagers, especially boys, and younger children.

    looking forward anxiously to more joe hill!
