Summary
Tom Grendel writes in his notebooks, mows lawns for his elderly neighbors, and pines for Willow, a girl next door. When Willow's brother, Rex starts throwing wild parties, the idyllic senior citizens' community where they live is transformed into a war zone. Tom's dad is an Iraq vet, and the noise from the parties triggers his PTSD, so Tom comes up with a plan to end the parties for good. But of course, it's not that simple
