Combining diverse cultural landscapes with the vulnerability of childhood, Amy Parker explores middle-class America in a debut collection Booklist calls "electrifying." In "Rainy Season," two daughters of a U.S. diplomat face extreme danger on the streets of Chiang Mai. With their mother in D.C. and their emotionally absent father away on business, 13-year-old Jill and her 11-year-old sister, Maizie, steal away from their Thai compound. But their youthful adventure takes a terrible turn when they are mistaken for prostitutes.
