Summary

One eventful summer's day builds to uncertain conclusion for Adam coping with loss, love and the constant pressure of his religious bigoted family.

It's Saturday, it's summer and, although he doesn't know it yet, everything in Adam Thorn's life is going to fall apart. Relationships will change, he'll change, but maybe, just maybe, he'll find freedom in the release.

Time is running out though, because way across town a ghost has risen from the lake. Searching, yearning, she leaves a trail of destruction in her wake.

NOTE: Contains detail of main character's struggle after a broken relationship against a background of being brought up by strict religious parents who have an abhorrent attitude to homosexuals.

NOTE: Contains sexual activity including unwelcome harassment, drug taking and the murder of a character under the influence of drugs and occasional strong conversational language.

NOTE: Carnegie shortlist 2018
