Lucas at 13 is excited about everything—swimming, fishing,
skipping rocks, and searching for lucky stones—there’s so
much to do in two weeks at the lake.
Lucas at 14 is a
little more jaded. And more interested in looking at the hot
girl next door than in looking for rocks.
Lucas at 15
is a little more angry. The friend he brings along makes him
see his summer haven with new—and less
Lucas at 16 is in love—until he
gets a break-up post card from his girlfriend, and then he
wants to die.
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 about
what is ever-changing and what is timeless, and how we are
shaped by both the people and places we love.
Runyon is the author of the highly acclaimed memoir, The
Burn Journals, as well as a novel, Maybe. He
lives in Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
