On the Waterfront

Mike Mccoy

It was the best summer of his life and the darkest days he ever lived. It was the summer of 1978. Danny, a thirteen-year-old boy hired as camp staff, fails the swim test to work on the waterfront. Mark, sixteen, wants nothing to do with the boy who has ruined his summer, but after acting out, he must now teach Danny to swim or get sent home. Even if Danny passes the test, will the others accept him? A bittersweet coming of age tale of two boys struggling for acceptance and friendship.
