Amrith is 14 and adopted. When his male cousin Niresh (from the family of his birth-mother) shows up at his home in Sri Lanka, Amrith's past, present, and future go through the same Monsoon storms that sweep across the island nation.
Amidst the summer tempests, Amrith falls in love with Niresh - and awakens to being gay.
"Swimming in the Monsoon Sea" won the 2005 Lambda Literary Award.
