When the story begins, the narrator, Jason Prosper, has lost his best friend and is adrift at a new school for troubled kids. As the story progresses, it becomes clear that Jason has many secrets and that his only real hope is to confide in a new friend, a young girl who is as confused and damaged as he is. The author writes beautifully about the sea, sailing and the difficulties of being young and lost. A moving portrayal of adolescence and a thoughtful consideration of class privilege.

A truly magnificent creation, surpassing in my view "A Separate Peace", which suggests itself in this context because of its shared plot elements. "Starboard" reaches further, into greater depths and dimensions, with "Peace"'s major virtue, by comparison, being its spare style, in much the same way that "The Old Man and the Sea" rises above the average able sea story.

Sensitive and well thought out characterization of teens, particularly in the handling of the murky waters of sexual identification. The pacing is very interesting since it takes place within a school year and so the mystery takes a long time to unfold.I learned a lot about sailing.

Awesome book, the perfect match between A Seperate Peace and Catcher in the Rye. Coming-of-Age at its best!

Didn't know where this book was going most of the time, it rambles and confuses the reader about what the point of the novel is. The kids behavior and how the adults react to that behavior is hard to believe.

A real work of art. As good as anything ever written on the subject of privilege and the moral decline of the upper class. Beautiful language and imagery throughout the novel and lots of plot twists. A solid and entertaining read.

An exceptional novel. The language is beautiful, the story is memorable and the characters will stay in your heart. I found the story of privilege youth utterly convincing. Though there is no easy closure or resolution to the conflicts, somehow this feels more true to life.
