The Year of Ice

by Brian Malloy

It's a tough Senior Year for Kevin. He discovers that his mother's death two years earlier (her car went off the road into the icy Mississippi river) may have been a suicide. The reason? His Dad had told his Mom that he was leaving them for another woman.

And if that weren't enough to deal with, Kevin is secretly Gay, has a huge crush on his friend, and yet he can't bring himself to do anything about it.

So Kevin struggles to figure out his life, deal with his father's dramas, and not be destroyed by the secrets that keep revealing themselves during "The Year of Ice."

THE YEAR OF ICE is an amazing book. Traveling along with Kevin on his journey is a claustrophic experience; you feel the same entrapments he feels and you long for freedom right along with him.
