Book Description:

John Conlan and Lorraine Jensen have to tell about something that just happened to them, about an experience too overwhelming to keep private.

The two high school sophomores come from constricting, unhappy homes, and although life seems tolerable since they have found each other, there is still much to be desired. Unusual circumstances introduce them to a lonely old man with an awful secret. An intense friendship results, and together the three create a strange, unreal world out of their zaniness and laughter.

But the very energy which built this world soon works to destroy it, and John and Lorraine are left again with their own reality.

This perceptive novel has a fresh, startlingly unsentimental story to tell about two young people searching for a way out of emptiness.

Two high school sophomores tell of the tragic consequences of their friendship for a lonely man.
