    Summary: 
    Recalls with psychological insight the maturing of a 16-year-old student at a prepatory school during WWII. Looking back to his youth, the adult Gene Forrester reflects on his life as a student at Devon School in New Hampshire in 1942. Although he is an excellent student, he evies the athleticism and vitality of his friend Phineas, or Finny. unable to cope with this insecurity, Forrester causes Finny to break his leg, sabotaging his athletic career. When the incident is later examined in a mock trial, Finny runs away, reinjures himself, and dies during consequent surgery.
