It is a world where they are free to make up all the rules and it becomes the place where they experince the last summer of their innocence. Their friendship is funny, compassionate and fairly innocent until they meet a Rhoda, a sweet but rather homely 15 year old who translates all her feelings into psychoanalytic jargon. When Rhoda intrudes upon their special world, it breaks apart and they share an experience so horrifying that it not only binds them together, but it locks them into a state of aimless adolescence for the rest of their lives."--Container
