In the not-too-distant future, everything is perfect until the unthinkable happens.
Average Will Madison lives a perfect life in a perfect house in a perfect neighborhood. He has a perfect job and beautiful, charming Tricia is the perfect wife. Losing what he has is unthinkable, so he never tells a soul about the dark times, about Tricia’s bad thoughts and tears or the emotional turmoil his life secretly holds.
When the van pulls into his driveway bringing his thirteenth son, Will’s worst nightmare begins to unfold. For Tricia, Peter is Lucky 13, but for Will, the boy’s appearance is the end of his world.
As his life crumbles around him, Will cleans up the pieces in the only way he knows how.
