"A beautifully written and deeply engaging study of loss and innocence, suffused with chilling dread. A haunting novel, a captivating debut; I loved it." —S. J. Watson, author of Before I Go to Sleep
Jim has a touch of the Sight. It’s nothing too spooky and generally useless, at least until the summer his cousin L.A. moves in with him and their grandmother. When Jim and L.A. discover the body of a girl in a field, an investigation begins that will put both their lives in danger. A riveting novel of adolescence, innocence, evil, and the unconquerable bond between two cousins, What Dies in Summer casts its spell on the first page and leaves an indelible mark.
