Sunshine and surfing. Drugs and grenades. Streetwise preachers and serial killers. There's a reason the words "troubled" and "youth" go together.

Mike James may be young but it would be a stretch to call him troubled. He's never been laid. He fears he never will be. The only fact of life that seems inevitable is death. Still, it's summer vacation, a season for optimism, and he's about to get his very own room for the first time, in a house above glitzy Bohemia Bay. His luck is bound to change!

But very bad choices bring bad luck in their wake, and after a night of juvenile mayhem, Mike finds his summer quickly turning into a nightmare. His old friends are disappearing. His new friends can't be trusted. The only girl he meets is probably an hallucination. So forget about sex.

Death, on the other hand... his chances of experiencing that are looking better all the time.
