Ryan, Miles, and Harley aren't friends, yet they have one thing in common: Isaac. He is the glue that holds them together and the lens through which they define who they are. When Isaac passes away, each boy is left struggling with their grief and identity. Will Kostakis peppers this fantastic novel with humor, grace, and empathy. With a gentle hand, Kostakis shows us that friendship can be our greatest strength and source of comfort, even if it comes from the last place we expect.

— Kelli


Ryan, Harley and Miles are very different people--the swimmer, the rebel and the nerd. All they've ever had in common is Isaac, their shared best friend.

When Isaac dies unexpectedly, the three boys must come to terms with their grief and the impact Isaac had on each of their lives. In his absence, Ryan, Harley and Miles discover things about one another they never saw before, and realize there may be more tying them together than just Isaac.

In this intricately woven story told in three parts, award-winning Australian author Will Kostakis makes his American debut with a heartwarming, masterfully written novel about grief, self-discovery and the connections that tie us all together.
