Description

There' s bad news and good news about the Cutter High School swim team. The bad news is that they don' t have a pool. The good news is that only one of them can swim anyway. A group of misfits brought together by T. J. Jones (the J is redundant), the Cutter All Night Mermen struggle to find their places in a school that has no place for them. T.J. is convinced that a varsity letter jacket- exclusive, revered, the symbol (as far as T.J. is concerned) of all that is screwed up at Cutter High- will also be an effective tool. He' s right. He' s also wrong. Still, it' s always the quest that counts. And the bus on which the Mermen travel to swim meets soon becomes the space where they gradually allow themselves to talk, to fit, to grow. Together they' ll fight for dignity in a world where tragedy and comedy dance side by side, where a moment' s inattention can bring lifelong heartache, and where true acceptance is the only prescription for what ails us.
