Thirteen-year-old Bea wants a best friend more than anything else, but when she meets boisterous Kate she gets more than she ever imagined. Porcupine Lake is a story of bravery and the secret world of girls set in northern Ontario during a hot and hazy summertime when adulthood has not yet arrived, but childhood is quickly vanishing.

Millions of leagues away from the over-beaten track of sexual and amorous awakening, Porcupine Lake manages—at last—to update, modernise and surprise in this genre.
