Will Walton Avid Bookshop bookseller and author Will Walton's debut novel, Anything Could Happen (PUSH, hardcover, $17.99), is a poignant, hard-hitting exploration of love and friendship, a provocative debut that shows that sometimes we have to let things fall apart before we can make them whole again.
