New York Times' best-selling author Miranda Beverly-Whittemore weaves a dreamy, suspenseful tale: a clever child's recollection of a summer's day turned frightening.

Francesca, Kelly, and Kelly's teenage sister Amanda are only meant to spend several hours at the pool together, while their professor parents finish up an afternoon of work at their lush, Oregon college. The younger girls are caught up in hair braiding and Marco Polo, but Amanda is poised on the cusp of an adult realm bursting with cruel secrets. When the girls run into a beautiful, anxious woman and her toddler, Amanda starts to act in ways that may well transform an unremarkable day into a dark turning point in all their lives.

By turns enchanting and terrifying, and always bursting with vivid emotion, "Frito Lay" brings us deep into our own childhood memories, reminding us that the dark and sinister were never quite as far away as we might have believed.

New York Times bestselling author MIRANDA BEVERLY-WHITTEMORE has published three novels: Bittersweet; The Effects of Light; and Set Me Free, which won the Janet Heidinger Kafka Prize for the best book of fiction by an American woman published in 2007. Her next novel, June, will be published in June 2016. A recipient of the Crazyhorse Fiction Prize, she lives and writes in Brooklyn and Vermont.
