Summary
The daily class discussions about the nature of man, the existence of God, abortion, organized religion, suicide and other contemporary issues serve as a backdrop for a high-school senior's attempt to answer a friend's dramatic cry for help
Summary
High school senior Eric Calhoune was a fat kid -- a really fat kid -- but has slimmed down since joining the swim team. Now the same people who used to call him "Moby" (as in Moby Dick, the whale) want to be his friends, but Eric remains loyal to Sarah Byrnes, who knows what it's like to be an outcast. When Sarah -- who has horrible burn scars from a childhood accident -- suddenly stops talking and is committed to a psych ward, Eric goes to visit her every day, but he can't figure out what has shaken the toughest girl he knows. Moments of humor give readers a breather from this novel's intense emotion and building suspense. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
