Description

From critically acclaimed writer Paul Griffin comes a fast-paced young adult novel about five very different teens lost at sea with no one to count on but each other.
Matt and John are best friends working out in Montauk for the summer. When Driana, JoJo and Stef invite the boys to their Hamptons mansion, Matt and John find themselves in a sticky situation where temptation rivals sensibility. The newfound friends head out into the Atlantic after midnight in a stolen boat. None of them come back whole, and not all of them come back."

About Paul Griffin

Paul Griffin loves being out on the waterin a boat with a working engine. Once, when he was a kid, his uncle's leaky old boat stalled. He was adrift less than an afternoon and in the relative safety of Long Island Sound, but this was scary enough to get him looking for higher ground. Now he lives in northern Manhattan, two hundred and fifty feet above sea level. He wrote the novels Ten Mile River, The Orange Houses, Stay With Me and Burning Blue, all for young adults.
