It’s that summer between the end of high school and the start of something else. Dean Stockton and Curt Hutton are best friends, and more often than not you can find them rowing on the Rogue River at dawn.
Together they experience something they will never be able to describe adequately. But then they won’t really need to. Not to each other. It’s that moment of swing when rowers find the rhythm and everything falls into place. The shell seems to lift right out of the water.
Enter Isabelle Smiley. She’s beautiful yet insecure, knowing yet innocent, and crazy about Curt in a way that no girl has ever been crazy about Dean. She wants Curt to choose a college closer to home than the one he and Dean have selected—and she can be persuasive.
“I’d never be able to hold out against a girl like Smiley,” Dean admits.
“Don’t say that,” Curt replies. “I told her she’d have to convince you, too.”
Everyone is conflicted in this story of friendship, lust, and life-changing choices. Only one thing seems certain to all of them: If Smiley strikes a match, Dean will catch fire.
“Sharply drawn and deceptively quiet, Combustible is an excellent novel that lingers in the mind long after completion. I loved it.” – Mark Richardson, author of The Sun Casts No Shadow.
“Combustible is a wonderful story … The author did a great job of bringing each character to life … I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a light read with a satisfying plot and interesting characters.”- Kristi Elizabeth, San Francisco Book Review
