What do you do when you are worried about something?  Do you escape into television?  Or maybe computer games?  Justin Riggs slips into what he calls  "The Big Nothing."  It is his escape from thinking about his father leaving, his brother going into the army and his best friend's new girlfriend.  But Justin really needs to find something to fill this void.  What, or who, can he turn to?  Can anything help him?  Especially when his brother gets orders to ship out to the Persian Gulf?
