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.

Description


May Lynn is a pretty girl who dreams of becoming a Hollywood star-until her dead body is dredged up from the Sabine River. Sue Ellen, May Lynn's strong-willed teenage friend, and her pals Terry and Jinx set out to dig up May Lynn's body, burn it to ash, and take those ashes to Hollywood. If May Lynn can't become a star, then at least her remains can be spread in the land of her dreams. All they need is some money and a raft; while the raft is easily available, stealing the money requires some gumption, but they manage it. Then they head downriver together with Sue Ellen's agoraphobic mother: a motley crew on a mission. Pursued by Uncle Gene and Constable Sy, who are after the money, and Skunk, an all-too-real legendary killer who's after their lives, they begin to understand that when you set out to make the dreams of a friend your own, your worst nightmares may come along for the ride.
