Bomb Island : a novel Stephen Hundley.

Summary:
"Part coming-of-age romance, part thriller, Bomb Island is a funny and fast-paced Southern summer novel exploring sub-culture communities, survival, and found family set on an island near an unexploded atomic bomb. Summer is in full swing on Bomb Island, Georgia. Fifteen-year-old Fish lives in a commune on the three-mile stretch of sand with his chosen family: their "mother-sage" Whistle and her white tiger, Sugar, a young man named Reef, and an old man named Nutzo, who is still missing. Fish and Whistle spend the days leading tours in their glass bottom boat out to the barrier island's namesake, an unexploded atomic bomb. This is the summer when Fish meets Celia, the tattooed daughter of a troublesome local charter fisherman bent on exposing Whistle's commune-and their illegal tiger. When a party at her dad's place goes sour, Fish brings Celia back to Bomb Island in the hope that she'll stay there with him. But they still can't find Nutzo, the tiger's behavior has become increasingly erratic, and everyone's summer is about to take a strange, dark turn. Narrated by an ensemble cast of uniquely independent outsiders who have chosen counter-culture lives informed by their desires and past traumas, Bomb Island takes a rollicking journey through the weirds and wilds of Coastal Georgia. Stephen Hundley has crafted a spirited, zany novel with a big heart that examines the strength it takes to live freely and without shame"-- Provided by publisher.
