Sue
Ellen's life is just about intolerable before one of her friends
turns up dead. She has an addicted mother and a no good father, as
well as an even wider host of creeps in her life. Sue Ellen, Jinx,
and Terry decide to set off down the river for greener pastures, a
chance at going to Hollywood, and hope for something better. On the
way they run into all kinds of evil and hospitality.

Edge
of Dark water is all around Mark Twain worship, with a little evil
thrown in for good measure. This book moves at a fast pace while
helping us to appriciate what we have, but not letting us forget that
sometimes action is called for. If Mark Twain time traveld to now and
became jaded he would probably develope crazy charcters like these.
One charecter is named skunk and one is addicted to a
laudanum/alchohol cure-all.
