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.
