|Birch Hills at World’s End begins between Detroit and nowhere, in 1999, when high
school senior Josh Reilly senses an apocalypse approaching. Josh's unease
increases as his privileged but disturbed friend Erik schemes in a journal he calls
"The Doomsday Book," where he plots revenge against the suburbia he's learned
to despise. When Lindsay, a sixteen-year-old famed for dramatic self-mutilation and
questionable poetry, becomes Josh's girlfriend, Erik finds companionship in a circle
of bikers and small-time meth traffickers. Josh, suspecting his friend Erik has
become a competitor for Lindsay's affections, peeks into the Doomsday Book and is
shocked by what he learns. A web of domestic strife, romantic rivalry, and millennial
anxiety challenges two boys to stand together as their youth comes apart.
