Clear Water by Amy Lane is a gem of a novel about a budding relationship between Wesley “Whiskey” Keenan, a field biologist and Patrick Cleary, a young wannbe yoga instructor with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder).

Patrick and Whiskey come together at a crucial point in Patrick’s life. Whiskey takes the center stage and helps Patrick to gain direction. The growing romance between Whiskey and Patrick is full of passion, energy, and snark. Watching these two characters interact with each and Freya “Fly Bait” Bitner, their fellow shipmate, as they try to avoid sex and chronicle the lives of a group of anomalous frogs is entertaining, to say the least.

Lane introduces environmental issues such as water pollution and frogs with two heads and extra limbs into Clear Water with a light touch and a bit of humor. Two-headed frog Catherine and Cal serve as a comedic/tragic symbol of the local watershed and the risks of chemical pollution. At the same time Lane is expressing environmental concerns in Clear Water, she handles the issue of Patrick’s ADD with sensitivity and honesty.
