Summary
During the 'seventies in New Hampshire, seventeen-year-old Jocelyn looks for answers when her neighbor, Gabe, goes missing and she learns that, while her boyfriend has been telling everything to a priest, Gabe has been keeping terrible secrets.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: This work talks about a mysterious - or malevolent - force in a small town. Jocelyn has two boys in her life. And a priest. Gabe has shared fourteen years of growing up next door. He's "a golden boy, an all-star". Yet now, in the spring of 1975, he's missing, disappeared on the brink of senior year at Weaver High. The whole town is set to go searching for him. Benny has been in New Hampshire only since January. Yet for Joss, he's the answer to a long-held prayer to be someone in somebody's eyes. She loves them both. Father Warren - hair white and "kind of cool in his black clothes" - is the link between the three of them, or a wedge, or a threat. For Joss, the priest holds the power over her sense of herself; for Benny, power over his soul; for Gabe, so mysterious and alluring, he holds the power of destiny.
