The Splintered Door and the Kiss presents a day in the life of 17-year-old H.G. Banche. An abusive father and a sympathetic girl next door form the two poles of H.G.’s experience. Will her love inspire him to do well in school, including the biggest football game of the year, or will the abuse of his father destroy him? More
From the age of 14 to 17, H.G. Banche has grown immensely, both inside and outside, but the abuse of his father threatens to hurt his performance both in the classroom and on the varsity football team.
Since he didn’t play on the junior varsity the year before—he was too small—he has not played in any games this season, at least not as a halfback, his position.
On this day of the biggest game of the year, will the faithful love that blossoms between H.G. and the girl next door enable him to maintain his balance both in class and on the field?
