In the long, hot Illinois summer of 1973, insecure, motherless Jamie falls under the dangerous spell of her older, more worldly cousin Fawn, who's come to stay with Jamie and her uncle as penance for committing an "unmentionable act".
It is a time of awakenings and corruptions, of tragedy and loss, as Jamie slowly discovers the extent to which Fawn will use anything and anyone to further her own ends - and recognizes, perhaps too late, her own complicity in the disaster that takes shape around them.

Not quite enough closure
The descriptions of life as a teenager in the 1970s are vivid and true to life. One identifies well with the characters and comes to know them over the course of “A Ticket to Ride.” Chloe Cannon does a fantastic job as narrator. It’s disappointing to come to know the characters so well when they’re back in the 1970s, but to have the story told from a later standpoint that feels incomplete. The story might feel more satisfying had it just ended in the 1970s.
