Stand by Me meets Leave it to Beaver in a nostalgic, coming-of-age story that takes a look back at growing up in the 1970s.
Summer 1977, Minnesota . . .
Eleven-year-old Jack just found out he’s going to have another little sister, which means the family house isn’t going to be big enough for them anymore.
Now he has one last summer before he has to leave the one place he’s always known as home, the neighborhood that has been his playground, and the friends he’ll never forget.
This is a story of friendship and love, of things gained and lost. But ultimately it is about growing up, and those special moments in our childhoods that help shape us into the adults we become.
A Moment in Magic Hour is a nostalgic, coming-of-age story that offers Generation Xers a comforting look back at growing up in the 1970s and 1980s.
