The acclaimed author of Train Go Sorry and the forthcoming Glass, Paper, Beans writes a luminous first novel about one remarkable summer in the lives of 11 and 12-year-old sisters.

Set in a small town, "Heat Lightning" chronicles a summer in the life of two sisters who lost their parents in a boating accident as babies and have been raised by their aunt. Told from the point of view of Mole, the 11-year-old, it traces the unraveling of the mythology that she and her 12-year-old sister have created to explain their parents' death.-- With "Heat Lightning", Leah Hager Cohen delivers a first novel that heralds the arrival of a brilliant new voice in fiction. In moving, sensual prose, the author captures the powerful alchemical transaction through which childhood is transformed into adolescence -- and lives are forever altered.-- Like Charms for the Easy Life, by Kaye Gibbons, and Housekeeping, by Marilynne Robinson, "Heat Lightning" explores with profound warmth and lyricism the relationship between three strong women.
