It’s the 80’s in the beach town of Emerald Isle, on the Crystal Coast of North Carolina…
Tallon Jackson lives with his parents in a tight-knit artists’ community. His days are filled with trips to the beach and parties that bring together a rich cast of local characters. But Tallon is caught in the middle of a dispute between his parents, who don’t trust organized religion, and his Christian grandparents, who demand that he be baptized.
Swept about like sand on a windy dune, Tallon struggles with right and wrong, the allure of bad influence, and even his belief in God. He finds some solace in He-Man and his best friend Shepherd—but when tragedy hits their tight-knit community, young Tallon will need something to believe in.
From the author of Swansboro People, The High Water Mark, and The Rocky Shore of Realitycomes a new story of nostalgia, of friendship, of faith, and coming of age in the 80s.
