Quotes

[Last lines]
Narrator: To this day, I can't tell you why I looked out that window. But when I saw her standing there, somehow I knew *neither* of us would ever be the same. I'm the last person in town to see her alive. And I don't know how I feel about that. I really don't.

Not your usual coming of age story
19 March 2017 | by oaksongSee all my reviews

Daniel is bright but probably not given enough work to keep him interested in school. Summer's about to start and his mother decides to send him to live with her sister on the coast. He falls in with a crowd that isn't that ambitious and decides to raise the level of play, so to speak.

Tim Chalamet as Daniel brings a sweetness and innocence to the story that makes it very believable. Daniel has no idea what he's gotten himself into and how very nasty that world can be. A girl who would normally be out of his league flirts with him as a joke, which he takes seriously having no real social experiences, and this leads to more trouble.

It's good to know, and hard to learn, what parts of life can be taken lightly and when things need to be taken seriously.
