Summary
Skimming Stones is about the bond forged by two teenagers hovering on the periphery of their siblings' illness and it captures some of those unseen long-term changes wrought in families affected by cancer. The novel is told from the perspective of Grace, a nurse, who runs into Nate, a boy whose family lived nearby. The connection they had as teenagers - both helpless witnesses to the progression of their siblings' leukaemia - is reaffirmed in adulthood and a new love story between them begins. This is a novel of affirmation and resilience
