Camp Sacred Heart: Short Story

Front Cover
Harper Collins, Nov 20, 2012 - Fiction - 50 pages
0 Reviews

David and Laurence fall into a sudden and deep friendship at summer camp. But when Laurence suggests a trip to the ominous Rock one night, everything changes.

The thirteen stories in Andrew Pyper’s intense and artful short-story collection, Kiss Me, deal with the issues, sensibilities and intangible estrangements of contemporary youth. But there are no neat and tidy coming-of-age passages here: these are narratives about reaching out—and often failing to touch—one another in a time of both privilege and fracture.

HarperCollins brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms. Look for more titles in the HarperCollins short-stories collection to build your digital library.
