Description - Joyland by Emily Schultz
Welcome to 1984 and the town of South Wakefield. Chris Lane is 14 and he's sure that he can see the future - or at least guess what's inside Christie Brinkley's mind. But he can't foresee the closing of Joyland, the town's only video arcade. With the arcade's passing comes a summer of teenage lust, violence and a search for new entertainment. Schultz brings the Cold War home in a novel set to the digital pulse of video games and the echoes of hair metal.
