The Starboard SeaRead about the other books on the list.
by Amber Dermont
This brooding tale of boarding school malaise is Dermont's fiction debut, a story of student and competitive sailor Jason Prosper coming to grips with a friend's suicide, transferring schools, and falling in love, against the backdrop of the 1987 stock market crash. Jason's first-person narrative of his turbulent teenage years is deftly peppered with sailing facts and the nautical knowledge of a well-traveled mariner.
