Baker & Taylor
As their family decays under the influence of alcohol, twelve-year-old Janey and her brother spend their summers by a lake, where they defend each other against the encroachments of the adult world

Blackwell North Amer
Twelve-year-old Janey spends summers at a lake with her family. In the languor of the long, hot days, she and her younger brother are left alone to play together and comfort each other while their parents entertain friends. Balancing on the tenuous thread of their parents' attention, ignored for long stretches and then called upon suddenly to mix drinks or awakened in the middle of the night by drunken kisses, the children huddle together in tender, compulsive closeness. Nourished only by their unspoken devotion to one another, the two fill their neglected hours exploring the lush summer landscape and protecting each other from the unpredictable moods of the dark adult world that surrounds them.
