Where the Summer Goes (chapters on youth)

David Pinheiro Vicente

It’s summer, a boy and his friends go to the river. On the ride there, a story is told about a man and his pet snake that tried to eat him. The boy falls from a tree trunk and gets hurt. A girl follows him. A couple kiss each other, another boy explores the woods and a third one just lays by a tree eating a peach.
In four chapters, the heat and the humidity of the forest unravel desires among them.
