Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"It was August. For years it was August . . . . There was heat like wet gauze and a high, white sky and music coming from everywhere at once."

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.

Synopsis:

Mesmerized by her seemingly sophisticated older cousin Fawn, who has been sent to live with Jamie's family after a sex scandal involving a teacher, Jamie agrees to a makeover in order to win Fawn's approval but finds herself torn between her sexually awakened new self and the girl she used to be. Reprint. 25,000 first printing.
