    She was, her kindergarten teacher said, inquisitive. It was said in that air of an adult trying to say something above her head, a sensation she was already very familiar with and already disliked strongly.

    Sometime between 1987 & 1993

    “Summer what?”

    “Summer camp,” DJ said cheerfully. “You know, tents and bugs and swimming in the lake and other kids Ty’s age.”

    This story takes place a couple years after “Housewarming”
