Their small town saw Alex Anderson and Kevin Rubenstein as the most unlikely of best friends, but that’s just what the handsome athlete and the artistic Jewish brainiac are: inseparable buddies since childhood. Then Kevin dies in a motorcycle accident, and his parents blame Alex. And Alex blames himself. His grieving derails both his studies and his football, and he’s sent away to a summer camp for troubled youths in the wilds of southeastern Oklahoma. Borderline suicidal, Alex finds his way back to sanity among the camp’s pine trees and clear lake waters—thanks to a Texas beauty with a secret and the most unselfish gift a person can give another. This young adult love story has been called “tender,” “an unusual twist on the boy-meets-girl scenario,” “heart-breaking,” and “the kind of story that reminds you what it is to be human.” Kirkus Reviews cites its “Twilight Zone-esque paranormal twist.”
