Book SummarySummer, 1964, and for 13 year old Bobby Slater, 1 of those rich summer kids up on Baker
Lake, it’s idyllic – swimming, fishing, baseball, hiking the mountains around the lake, camping on the islands, but what Bobby wants is a girlfriend.
Be careful what you wish for, Bobby.
Bobby gets his girlfriend, a local girl, an Indian cutie and it’s 1 soda, 2 straws, eyes lost in love.
It’s bliss except the girl is fickle. Sometimes she’s sweet and funny, sometimes not and it’s because she’s living with a deadly 150 year old curse.
Bobby will lead the fight to save the girl and he’ll have help from people living and dead. He’ll have his sisters and his best friend-cousin Joe and Bobby will have a grumpy Indian war chief and the local gypsy fortune teller and from the other side there’s Sophronia, the Indian girl’s mom, dead 10 years, a victim of the curse.
Mostly, though, it’s on Bobby Slater. Can he break down the barrier that divides the summer people from the locals? Can he bring them all together to save the girl?
