Lucas is a story told by Caitlin, the protagonist. Caitlin, or Cait, is fifteen years old and lives on a small British island in the community of Hale. Cait lives with her father, a writer, and her older brother Dominic. Her mother was killed in a car accident when Cait was five years old. Between her father spending long hours on his books, her brother mixed up with the wrong crowd, and her mother gone, Cait feels very much alone in the world.
