Speed of Darkby Barbara Quinn, Dawne' Dominique
Luke and his mentally challenged sister
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
There are some people you never forget. In the summer of 1964, Luke D'Angelo falls for one of them-a mysterious girl named Celeste. Like Luke, Celeste is an outsider struggling to find her identity, but unlike Luke, Celeste has special powers that have the potential to destroy everything Luke and his friends believe in.
Luke and his mentally challenged sister become fast friends with this curious girl. Set in upstate New York, in a town that is home to a shrimp cocktail plant that belches a foul-smelling tomato and fish fog, this coming of age tale about a girl with a dream and the teens who want to help her fulfill it, is a balance between the comic and the profound. The story resonates with the message that inside each of us is a light that burns so bright no dark can extinguish it. But at what cost?

Coming of age meets fantasy/paranormal. A great fun read. DDT clouds, bike rides and even respectful treatment of a special needs kid sister. Enjoy!
