Jasper is lost in the living world. When youre failing classes, kicked off the swim team, and your family is on the skids, life can feel like its going to hell. Yet, in all the disappointment, Jasper has his best friend, Agnes. In one night of teenage passion, Jasper and Agnes consummate a years-long friendship.

Summer Of '42

Synopsis:
It's the summer of 1942. . .America is at war; men line up by the thousands to join the army; and on a tiny island off the coast of Maine, three fifteen-year-old boys begin a summer they will never forget. Hermie, Oscy and Benjie are accustomed to coming up and spending the summer together, but somehow this year seems different. Girls have replaced baseball and comic books, and a beautiful young war bride has won the heart of Hermie. Left alone by her husband as he goes off to fight in World War II, Dorothy is befriended by Hermie, and they form a bond that differs greatly from the one he shares with his two buddies. after meeting three girls on the beach, Hermie and his friends experience adolescent misadventures, including a date at the movies (mistakenly fondling a girl's elbow instead of her breast), a trip to the drugstore to buy condoms (where Hermie squirms during several painful attempts to say the word rubber) and a beach party (which begins with a jitter-bug and ends with Hermie missing his date's lips and kissing her forehead). It is with Dorothy that Hermie feels most comfortable, and after she invites him over for a friendly night out at her house, Hermie discovers a devastating telegram. and in that one night, Hermie learns an important lesson about life, love and the scope of human compassion.
