Cousins--Philomel, 1990 ISBN 0399221646. Hardcover, Paperback.
The cousins are two girls, Cammy and Patty Ann. Cammy has a good relationship with most of her family
but her relationship with her grandmother, Tut, is particularly strong and loving. Patty Ann, however, is a
different cup of tea. She's beautiful and smart but spoiled, selfish and rude. In exasperation, Cammy wishes
Patty Ann were dead. Then Patty Ann drowns. Not only that, Patty Ann dies a hero by rescuing another
cousin, Elodie. Cammy must handle guilt and remorse and it's her loving family, particularly Gram Tut that
helps her through it. The book is short but the characters are fully developed.
