NOVEL

Theology teacher Emily Hamilton recounts a tumultuous year at All Saints High, dubbed "All Surf" because of its Newport Beach, Calif., location. Events involving three students echo incidents from Hamilton's past: teen pregnancy, failed romance and, perhaps, manslaughter. A predilection for forbidden fruit has her falling for both a student and her boss (a priest). Harboring secrets more cancerous than the cigarettes she sneaks, Hamilton seems bent on self-destruction. Callanan's achievement is to make it perfectly clear why: She's human.
