Product Overview

It happens on a hot summer evening, while children with peeling sunburns roam the streets playing tag and cicadas hum in the trees. Sissy''s ex-best friend goes missing while riding her bike in the park, and it casts a shadow on her family, who are already struggling to maintain a sense of normalcy. For nine-year-old Sissy, whose mother is not there when she''s needed, whose father is angry, and whose older sister is focused on seducing her high school teacher, desperate secrets seem to underlie everything. As the summer grows hotter and the missing girl is never found, the sense of foreboding builds toward one violent night when everything will change forever for Sissy''s family.

Annotation Two families in a Pennsylvania town are racked by tragedy in this downbeat debut by Sandra Novack. Ten-year-old Vicki Anderson disappears from the local park, leaving her mother, Gail, to be drawn even deeper into the bottle where she's hidden since her husband's suicide. Down the road, the Kisch family is on the verge of disintegrating when mother Natalia heads to Europe with her lover, leaving behind a baffled husband and two lonely daughters. When Natalia returns, she and her family must test the bonds that bind them to determine if they are strong enough to stay together.
