"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.

I was hesitant about this book because I bought it on sale at Barnes and Noble, but it turned out to be one of the best books I've ever read. It takes place in the 1970's and tells the story of a lonely teenage girl and the summer that changed her forever. This novel is a must read.
