Overview

WE WERE DELINQUENTS, ADDICTS, MENTAL CASES, ORPHANS AND KIDS FROM BROKEN HOMES

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.

Small Press Magazine - unknown reviewer
"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."

    My teenage daughter loved this!

    Gave this to my 13 year old daughter and she told me (with tears in her eyes) how much she loved reading it. She's going to tell her friends...thought I would too. High recommended.

    Slightly different from her other books, but still a good read

    Not the typical Katia book but still a worth while read.
