Abstract:

On the porch Biscuit finds a girl, bedraggled and speechless. It is his cousin, Lee Ann, who has come through the woods to find safety at the house where Biscuit lives with his grandma. As the novel unwinds, we discover the trauma she and other girls in the town have undergone. Told by Biscuit, a boy on the cusp of adolescence, What Dies in Summer is a story of how 1960s Dallas is menaced by a series of violent attacks on young women. This is a profound, moving story about coming of age amid a community in crisis.
