In the long, hot Illinois summer of 1973, insecure, motherless Jamie falls under the dangerous spell of her older, more worldly cousin Fawn, who s come to stay with Jamie and her uncle as penance for committing an unmentionable act. It is a time of awakenings and corruptions, of tragedy and loss, as Jamie slowly discovers the extent to which Fawn will use anything and anyone to further her own ends and recognizes, perhaps too late, her own complicity in the disaster that takes shape around them. A captivating story about a teenager s struggle to be accepted by her peers. . . . The story is more than believable it simply comes alive. The book perfectly captures the free-spirited attitude of the decade and the curiosity of adolescence. Tampa Tribune McLain compels as she excavates two tragedies. Chicago Sun-Times"
