Leap

(2012)
A novel by

 

"With Verge, Z Egloff enters the ring of fiction with the assurance of an old hand. . . . This is a talented writer."
Carol Anshaw


"Verge has heart and wit and intelligence."
Emma Donoghue


Leap is a story everyone can relate to: we all left high school and then wondered what on earth was coming next.

Rowan Marks knows that college is waiting in the fall. But first, there's the summer vacation.

It's 1979 and her older brother Ben is smoking too much dope. Her best friend Danny is in love with her - even if he hasn't quite figured this out yet. And she's taken an instant dislike to Catherine, the new girl in this Ohio town. Maybe you can see where this is going. That's more than Rowan can manage.

Catherine steals up and takes her heart. Danny stops speaking to her. And when Ben crashes the car, family secrets come tumbling out.

Yes, this is the summer for Rowan to come of age. Even if she'd rather not.

Z Egloff is an exciting new talent. Her first novel, Verge, won the Bywater Prize for Fiction and is a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award in the Lesbian Debut Fiction category.
