Book Description


Fifteen-year-old Kate Steiner is not sure why she is suddenly boarding at an East Coast school for troubled kids, though there is evidence that her lawyer parents are having marital problems. It is the mid-1970’s, and at the progressive school where she has landed, Kate is initiated into a stratified society inhabited by kids who fell through the cracks.

Kate must grapple with moral ambiguities when she discovers that Patrick, her first boyfriend, is also a slip-sliding drug addict. In the loosening of family ties, and faced with an inscrutable headmaster, uncommunicative parents and a doomed first love, Kate makes shadowy passage through her questioning adolescence…finding solace in a ‘soul catcher’ dangling inside a geodesic dome built by a quirky boy who surprises her with an unexpected friendship.


“Taut, clean storytelling.” –Publishers Weekly

“A realistic, believable boarding school, where adolescent angst and the trauma of growing up at a breakneck pace is presented…as the difficult transition it is.” —Small Press Magazine

“Awesome and revealing.” --Elizabeth, reader

5.0 out of 5 stars a parable for all adults 1 May 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this book to go with the rest of this author,s novels.
I am so glad I did, although the book is a coming of age 'teen angst'
it is also a wake up call to all the grown ups that think the decisions that they make do not affect their children, they do and we see the consequences at play here. Well written and insightful.

I enjoyed the book, but not as much as her other books I have read, but I think it possible was the subject matter. Will still read further books of hers.
