Surface Tension

ebook

The cottage on the lake is always the same, but Luke is changing. At thirteen he's excited. At fourteen he's cool. At fifteen he's pissed off. At sixteen he's in love.

Through four summers' worth of trips to the emergency room, campfires and house fires, parties and feuds with neighbors, Luke is doing his best to navigate life. He makes discoveries, makes mistakes, freaks out, and comes to see things in a new light.

Brent Runyon has crafted a remarkable portrait of a boy at four distinct points in his life and literally shows us his coming of age. It's a story that explores what is ever-changing and what is timeless, and how we are shaped by both the people and places we love.

From the Hardcover edition.
