Simon Mariswood has much to wrestle with as, in deeply reflective mood, he stands by the river at the boys' boarding school he attends. For almost growing into boyhood without the comforting love we all crave he finds meaningful commitments at school - and that's his problem. With heart-rending openness, Mariswood explains his early life and shares uninhibited how he discovers more about himself on his unsought journey into puberty. Then he has to struggle with his sexuality - and here too tells all with ' holds' barred. An excellent story to answer the many complexities of teenagers trying to come to terms with reality.
