E | 2 comments Hello!

I am looking for a YA/NA book about a homeless boy that gets along fine on his own, but is caught sleeping in a barn next to a house. The girl that lives there finds him and threatens him with a weapon. Afterwards she takes him inside to her parents, where they discuss what to do next. I believe her mom is a police chief. The boy insists that he doesn't need any help.
In the beginning of the book we get a glimpse of how the boy has survived so far out there. Also, the night before the boy is caught, the girl sees him swimming across a river in order to spend the night on a boat or barque. I am not sure if the boy and the girl fall in love or not. I started reading this book two years ago, but didn't finish it.

Thank you for your help,

Elisabeth, is this a contemporary story?

What's the location (country, region, near a well-known city)?

E | 2 comments Hi Kris,
yes, it is a contemporary story. Sorry I forgot to mention this.

The story played somewhere in the States. I do not remember the exact location tough, since I live in Austria.
