Publisher's Summary

Enjoy the adventures of eleven year-old Portia, who together with her younger brother, Foster, spend a summer with their cousin, Julian, engaged in more than the usual summer pastimes of sun, fun, and games. The three intrepid children soon discover a fascinating abandoned summer resort, consisting of deserted crumbling Victorian summer homes surrounding a vanished lake, which is now a swamp. But, best of all, they discover and befriend an elderly eccentric brother and sister who tell them the story of Gone-Away Lake.

Go Away - Gone Away

This was really lame. Nothing happens except the kids meet some old people who tell them how great everthing used to be, and how kids today have pathetic lives. And this book was written in the 50's. The narrator gives a real overacted, emotional reading. NO plot, no interesting characters, just a lot of meandering.
