He plays little league baseball, rides his bike, swims and fishes with his friends. He is trying to grow up while he can amid the resonation of free love and everything that goes with that belief. Pat is a good-natured boy with the world by the tail wanting nothing more than discovering the truth about girls and maintaining the friendship he has with his two best friends, Mike and Lenny. The younger of two children, his parents, Howard and Delores, raise him the best they can- and things are going well for Pat and his family until the unexpected death of his father. At thirty-five, no one could have anticipated the sudden demise of Howard, especially Delores and Pat. Together, they are forced to leap the hurdle laid at their feet and then come to the realization that life continues. Two years pass and Pat learns that girls are not as mysterious as when he was younger. The summer of 1972 proves that fact. Pat and his buddies befriend three young women from the Organization of the Rainbow in town for a week-long retreat, and Linda launches Patas life into a tailspin. This is a story of living, of death, of love and the events that aid a young man in his development during the long journey into a life.
