Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two tragic deaths are handled very differently by school administrators. A drunk driving accident paralyzes Adrian Vanderlaar and kills his girlfriend. The outpouring of grief is starkly contrasted with the muted response to a gay-bashing murder, causing Paul Carter to speak out. Paul's growing awareness of his sexuality and Adrian's return to school play out artfully in a book brimming with emotion, humor, and humanity, and bravely unsentimental unsentimental in its treatment of both young men, Pebble in a Poolis a complex yet sparely written account of actions, reactions, and consequences.
