Book Description:

“My name is James Howard Wallace, and I always wanted to be normal.” Every young man should have a mentor. Jim Wallace is about to prove for good and all how “normal” he is when he finds himself getting close to Pat Baxter, his neighbor next door. Pat befriends Jim, reveals to him his own heartbreaking story, and in the end helps him know who he really is and where he wants to go with his life. Along the way, Jim must decide what to tell his parents and his girlfriend, Liz, and he must confront an old acquaintance who unexpectedly comes back into his life.

Praise for Wallaconia:

"Keenly and precisely, Pratt depicts the voyage of a boy who wins his own sense of manhood. A wonder-fully written, original coming-of-age tale." – Michael Graves, Lambda Literary

“Sharp, focused, super-intense, and special. It’s rare to find a novel with such a beautifully rendered friendship between a young gay man and an older mentor. I’ll remember the relationship between Jim and Pat for a long, long time.” —Bill Konigsberg, author of Openly Straight and The Porcupine of Truth
