"The Found Boat." Alice Munro.

One-minute review: Rite of passage story. Three boys. Two girls. From boys vs. girls, they are united in preparing a wrecked boat in the flooded river for launching. They play together as kids in the deserted railway station. Then they play “Truth or Dare” and strip and face each other in the water and then separate again. An event in growing up.
