Elizabeth Anne (vetinari) | 1 comments Book is pre-2008, Young adult fiction.
A young boy with a two-syllable name that sounds feminine (Pekka? Petra?) is either brothers, best friends, or a puppy-love type boyfriend to the main character. There's something about a boat or ship (in a warm climate place) and our Pekka kid falls overboard or dies or is otherwise separated from our main character.

All I can say about the world is that it's not technological, kind of pastoral stuff happening, so maybe idealized early earth or a mildly fantastical world.

I feel like there was something about a magic stone or pebble but that may be a red herring.

Thanks so much!!
