A novel about the two teens and the tough choices they must face as life takes each on an unexpected ride.
Sally is feisty, independent, free-spirited girl who lives with her mother and a... More > strong-willed Irish woman. Sam is an uncertain, quiet, and sensitive teen living with his father. Unlikely, friends at first, now they cannot imagine sports or adventures without each other.
In mid-summer, as they turn 13, life turns upside down for each of them, and the friends are separated for almost a year.
Sam situation gets much worse during the following year. For Sally’s life turns much sweeter. Gentle guidance from a new step-father replaces the un-loving, strong-arm of Mrs. Murphy. It softens her hard edges, reins in her instinct to roam, but separates her from the gang of neighborhood kids she has led and organized for years.
But even those changes aren't the end. Soon each must find the courage to make the difficult choices in their lives.< Less
