In many cultures and throughout history, there have been manhood rituals. For the boys of Penwinnard, it is Trevanian's Leap - the jump off a high point on the cliff into a deep rock pool below.
Taking the Leap is foolish, dangerous and strictly forbidden. Nevertheless, Frank is tempted. And then afterwards, the tattoo. What would his mum say? His mother was in prison for embezzlement. As Bob says, she really doesn't have the right to say anything.
|The boys of Penwinnard have free access to the beaches and the cliffs. |
The boss has never lost a boy to drowning. He hopes he never will.
Thanks to Wade and to Rob, skateboard kings, who gave me permission to use their images for my books.
Rob is the one in front, currently pretending to be Sid, hero of 'You Gotta Have Manners.'

Penwinnard 4 is in progress. In this story, the vine covered chapel plays an important part.
