A novel about friendship, adventure, the pitfalls of growing up, and first love; garnished with the honey-sweet spice of summer.
Sam moves to the country with his family, but his displeasure at the upheaval vanishes as soon as he meets the neighbor boy. He quickly loses his heart to nature in summer, freedom, and Alex, his new best friend. But it?s not just him. It seems as if Alex has been waiting for someone just like Sam to arrive. From the first moment they set eyes on each other, an inexplicable bond ties the two boys together. Only as they begin to grow into men do they start to understand that it's far more than brotherly friendship that's tying their hearts together?
