So instead, she spends much of her time alone, riding her bike through the village and visiting musician and social drop-out Mark on his overgrown farm. One day while out on one of her excursions, Lea spies fi ve boys heaving an oil barrel over the dye factory fence and pedalling off with their booty on a bicycle trailer. Curious, Lea follows the boys at the next opportunity, and discovers they have built a raft on a small lake. But there's a problem: the raft belongs to the gang, and girls are strictly forbidden. Desperate to be admitted to the group, Lea undergoes a test of courage, and from then on the summer seems fi lled with adventure...
