Overview

"Awesome and revealing."*

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.

"We were delinquents, addicts, mental cases, orphans and kids from broken homes."

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.

PRAISE FOR KATIA LIEF'S NOVELS

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.

The most descriptive word for this story is Vague. I kept feeling there was just something beyond reach that i wasn't getting. There wasn't.
