Book 23 of 2022

‘Heatwave’ by Victor Jestin

Been meaning to read this for a while.

17 year old Leo is on a camping holiday with his family. On the final Friday of the trip, unable to sleep, he sees one of the boys from the campsite hanging from the chain of a playground swing. Leo watches as the chain slowly strangles him. He panics, buries the body in the sand and returns to his tent.

The next 24hrs we follow Leo as he unravels: heat, desire, guilt, friendship, love, it has it all.

Great little read.
