About the Book:
Twenty-five years ago, Noah Berkley's childhood was stolen from him.
Twenty-five years ago, he lost the first and only love of his life.
Twenty-five years ago, someone died at his hand.
Only now—after all these years and spurred by the death of his father—does Noah Berkley believe he can face the memories he buried in the winter of 1984.
But sometimes memories aren't the only things we recover when we reopen the wounds of the past...
In Nothing Lasting, Glen Krisch has one line that stood out for me: Ever wonder what secrets people keep? This is the core theme of the novel, and it's one that is completely fascinating, emotionally-charged, and almost magic with its combination of complexity wrapped in simplicity. This is a fresh look at the coming-of-age novel, and it's one of the best I've ever read. I loved this book, and I wish I'd written it. Krisch writes with a natural style that is almost invisible, allowing his wonderful characters to tell their own story in their own way. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

From the first few pages of Nothing Lasting — from the title itself, even! — Glen Krisch creates a sense of dread that never lets up. The characters live and breathe, and I felt as if I knew every one of them, the good and the bad. Fans of dark coming-of-age tales will undoubtedly cite this one as a favorite for years to come.
— James Newman, author of Midnight Rain, Animosity, and Ugly As Sin
Nothing Lasting is a moving coming-of-age tale, full of the pangs of first love, the pains of deep regrets, and the perils of choosing your friends unwisely. This is adolescence the way it usually is, rather than the version we choose to remember.
— Brian Hodge, author of Whom the Gods Would Destroy and Picking the Bones
