Mike is a ninth grade boy in love with his best friend. They grew up together and are almost inseparable. The summers spent on the pier of the lake fishing together from sunup to sundown and the never ending games of pinball were things I could remember from my past also.
First love is a hard thing, especially when the other person can't love you the way you love them. Sometimes you don't know your best friend and sometimes they don't know themselves. Growing up is a time of exploration and learning. It is about being there for each other in the good and the bad times. And sometimes it is about giving into fate and destiny.
The underlying message of this fantastic book is that friendship trumps all. Love really does know best. Even if it doesn't happen exactly the way you expect, it will get you.
The camping, the boating, the characters and the growing up all involved engage in is a delightful way to spend an evening. I read this book in one sitting while listening to the rain hit my hotel window. The memories that came rushing back to me when I finished reading this were a welcome addition to that night. The adventures of Mike and Rhiannon mimicked parts of my youth so closely that sometimes I thought I was reading about my life.
Kudos to author D.W. Davis. I cannot wait to read his second book.
An added bonus is the richness that is detailed in the surroundings. Set in the recent past, the setting is familiar to anyone who resides or vacations to Coastal North Carolina. Though the author litters descriptions of well-known locations, it is not so detail oriented that a reader unfamiliar with the area is lost.
While in my perfect world, the subject of alternative sexuality would not have ended the way it did, the tone of acceptance by the main characters is refreshing. It presents one of the gentler, non-sexualized, sides of very real interactions between friends that readers of all ages can appreciate.
Just what I needed.
Mr Davis has written a masterpiece with this so real and genuine and true young love story of hope and friendship.
The places are so clear in my mind like the beautiful waters and camp.
I hope to read all of Mr Davis books in this most precious series.
The emotions this novel evokes are welcomed.
The story is set in the 1970's, a time that is much simpler and easier than today. The descriptions of this time period are spot on and bring the reader back in time to memories of that era.
It begins with Rhiannon and Mike in their teenage years as best friends since grade school. Mike is in love with Rhiannon, but she is not interested. They are best friends and according to her, cannot be more than that.
Through the trials and tribulations of their teenage years, expressed with a keen eye for detail of the time period, Mr. Davis delivers a wonderfully told story. The characters are realistic, the plot is heartwarming and the ending is exactly what I had hoped for.
For a first novel, this was very well-done and I look forward to reading the next books in this series.
