It starts with the story of Arthur Clive Pinner, a Home Boy shipped to Canada in 1909, desperate for some kind of refuge. Flash forward ninety years: the now ancient Art Pinner sits in his wheelchair, vaguely aware of the intrigues and stresses of twenty-first century Sky Falls. The real-life dramas swirling around Art make up the bulk of this collection of thirteen stories about a group of young people coming of age in a small town in northern Ontario. These are stories in which teenagers come to terms with their sexuality, with private shame and public tragedy, with emerging love, with heroism-and with the inexplicable spirits and small miracles that are at work in their lives.
