How do you mend a broken friendship?

For Lance Parker and Daniel McAllister, the answer is simple – road trip.

In Randy Richardson‘s coming-of-age story “Cheeseland” the shock and grief of a friend’s suicide creates a gulf between the two suburban Chicago high school seniors. A trip to Wisconsin should be just the ticket to come to terms with the trauma that has pulled them apart.

The journey of recovery is filled with comical twists as the two teens navigate Cheeseland, a place that blurs the line between adolescence and adulthood.

The journey of recovery turns into a journey of discovery, as secrets are revealed and the ugly truth behind their friend’s death unfolds.

Now, thirty years later, the secrets they buried have come back to haunt them. Told in two parts, the novel’s long and winding road comes full circle when these two friends must finally confront their past and come to grips with their present lives.

But is it too late to heal old wounds? Cheeseland is a novel about loyalty, friendship and the self-destructive nature of secret-keeping and unresolved anger.
