The Catch

Der Fang
Morgan likes the babbling of the river, the soft whistle when she casts her line and the excitement when a trout bites and runs with it. Alas, the boys in her class aren’t impressed by this passion of hers, and her brother's friend least of all. Attentively, she observes what goes on around her. What do the other girls do differently? An awakening curiosity about the other sex and youthful insecurity meet in a head-on collision.
