    Summary

    Later, Dan will look back on that moment. He’ll tell himself he should’ve been firmer, should’ve knocked the thought completely out of Sam’s head. Should’ve tried harder to be the kind of brother Sam deserved, like David.

    Should’ve.

    (Or, Dan Rydell’s life from age fourteen to twenty: from high school to college, to losing Sam and finding Casey, as told through seven music-inspired vignettes.)

    Summary

    Dana took a deep breath and pressed her fingers to her temples. “Who started it?”

    “Nobody,” said Casey, at the same time as Dan said, “He did.”

    Casey shot Dan a sidelong glare and muttered, “Way to throw me under the bus, there, buddy.”

    “Maybe if you hadn’t started it,” Dan hissed back.

    Summary

    Dan Rydell drove to Los Angeles in the summer of 1988.

    It might have been a questionable idea. It might even, if one were to listen to his father, be a stupid idea. If one were to listen to Jacob Rydell, affectionately known to his intimates as Jay, one might think that blowing that kind of gas money is a waste, when the plane ticket is cheaper and faster, and it’s not like you need to bring much. What do you think you’re doing, having a adventure? This is a job, Danny.

    Dan did not think about that. The open road, with the sky arching beautifully above him, was a truly magnificent thing. He had his favorite tapes and a working cassette player. He mashed play without looking, and when he hit the end he’d swap it out, Simon le Bon’s voice thready against the roar of the pavement. Twelve hours a day of driving would get him there in under a week. There were parks and motels to sleep in when and if it became necessary. He chain-smoked when he started getting tired, juggling the cigarette lighter with the wheel, and kept going.

    Summary

    “So here’s the thing,” said Casey.

    Abby squinted at him. “You’re Casey McCall.”

    “That’s correct.”

    “You’re Danny’s partner.”

    He nodded, feeling stiff and awkward. “I was, yes.”

    Abby rocked back in her chair, contemplating him. “You should probably find a different therapist.”

    Summary

    Dan had been so bone-deep sure that he was going to have to leave Casey that he had, in effect, mentally reconciled himself to the idea. There was something to it, he was pretty sure, and he said so to Abby: something to the idea of reconciliation, something to smoothing over all the hollow, pitted scars in his soul with warm beach sand. He’d bake in the sun until all the regrets had baked out, like alcohol from a rum cake.

    “Don’t you mean rum balls?”

    “No, I’m pretty sure I mean cake.”

    Summary

    In 2004, a lot of things happened. That was how Dan had decided to think of it: A Lot of Things Happened. In some small way, that absolved him of the responsibility of keeping track of exactly which things had happened, because God, there were a lot of things and so very few of them were good.
