from the book...
Luke spends his days hanging out at the beach, working shifts at the local supermarket, and trying to stay out of trouble at school.
His mate Bongo gets wasted, blocking out memories of the little brother social services took away and avoiding the stepdad who hits him.
And Casey, the girl they both love, dreams of getting away and starting a new life in a place where she can be free.
All of them are waiting for life to change. But when it does will they be ready?
