That sign is all the encouragement Bobby Marks needs to apply for a job at Lenape Laundry, where no summer resident has worked before. In a white driver's uniform with an Indian head on the back, a toothpick in his mouth, and a red Lenape baseball cap pulled low over his eyes, he'll be the ultimate image of cool.
But the job is tougher than Bobby expects. The foreman hates him. The owner wants him to spy on his fellow workers. The other workers keep their distance. The conditions in the laundry are dangerous- and the owner refuses to do anything to make them better.
Bobby's determined to stick it out no matter what. He's going to prove he's not just another rick sumerboy working for kicks. But sooner or later Bobby will have to tangle with the owner himself- and that's one showdown Bobby's not so sure he's going to win.
