Andrei learns to navigate Putin s Moscow, still the city of his birth but with expensive coffee He looks after his elderly but surprisingly sharp grandmother, finds a place to play hockey, a caf to send emails, and eventually some friends, including a beautiful young activist named Yulia Over the course of the year, his grandmother s health declines, and his feelings of dislocation from both Russia and America deepen Andrei knows he must reckon with his future and make choices that will determine his life and fate When he becomes entangled with a group of leftists, Andrei s politics and his allegiances are tested, and he is forced to come to terms with the Russian society he was born into and the American one he has enjoyed since he was a kid.
