I didn't review this earlier because I went to high school with Richard and felt I would be biased, but the book deserves a review. This related very little to my high school experience, but I thought it was such a great read that I wasn't able to put down. The scrapes this kid gets himself into are a little over-the-top, but some of the emotional challenges he faces are real. An enjoyable read. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375839674, Hardcover)

On the dock of a lake in a tiny town at the corner of Nowhere & Nowhere, he sits counting the seconds until his high school graduation—at which point Arthur M. Flood intends to leave his hick life far behind in the brown Kansas dust. That's the plan. Until . . . up from the lake's muddy depths swims a girl. She's not a mermaid, but she is the one who shakes up Arty's life, makes him mad and mad for her, and helps him find a pathway to his past, his future, and where his heart truly lies.

Teens will recognize their own emotional landscape in this steamy, funny, coming-of-age tale in which the heart tries to hide, only to be utterly exposed by love and lust, lost and found.

In the spring of 1988, as his high school graduation approaches, Artie Flood worries that he will never be able to escape his tiny Kansas town.
