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 until he can be on his own.
Bongo gets wasted, blocking out memories of the little brother Social Services took away from his addict mom and avoiding the stepdad who hits him.
And Casey, the girl they both love, longs to get away from her strict, controlling father and start anew in a place where she can be free.
When their lives all take very different and surprising paths, will these three friends find a way to come together again?
