When John winds up accidentally drugging his two-year-old brother, his journey out of adolescence goes flying off the existential rails...ZERO STATION is set in February 1991, during the first invasion of Iraq.

Per the narrator (John), on Page 5: “[This] is my account of what happened during the last three days of the Persian Gulf War. No, I wasn’t there (in Iraq, I mean). This is a Jersey story (mostly). But it’s a war. You’ll see.”“ZERO STATION is an unusual literary cocktail, a heady mix of the edgy and the sweet.”- Frank Wilson, retired Philadelphia Inquirer Book Review Editor“At once sad, hilarious, and stirring, ZERO STATION captures the pitch and velocity of adolescence as few novels in recent memory have managed to do. Fans of Nick Hornby are sure to love Ippolito’s rousing debut.”- Jonathan Evison, author of *All About Lulu*“Greg Ippolito belts out a deft debut bent on telling one thing: the truth.

Always the truth. All those unstoppable consequences, all those nerve-burning decisions, all the funny and frightening ways Ippolito adds his volume to the bookshelf of a generation.”- Paul Siegell, author of *jambandbootleg*
