Set in the 1960s at an English boarding school, this novel chronicles an unlikely friendship between two boys and a scandal that shatters the idyll that has shielded and nurtured their relationship.
From the Publisher:
Sailing the eastern coast of England with his godson, one-hundred-year-old H remembers his privileged teenage exploits at the side of unlikely childhood companion Finn, whose significantly different lifestyle enchants H before the pair is shattered by a painful scandal. Reprint.
The novel's 100-year-old narrator reminisces to his days as a troubled teenager in a dreary all-boys English boarding school. On the beach he discovers another boy, Finn, an orphan who lives in a small beach hut, free from society's crushing demands. Bestselling author Meg Rosoff has written an exquisitely novel that beautifully captures the irresistible pull of romance on the soul of youth.


"An extraordinary account of an obsessive friendship between a prep-school misfit and a beautiful orphan....Great Expectations meets Death in Venice in this visceral, intensely surprising tale." (starred review) 11/01/2007
