DOG-LOVING COUSIN is the story of a typical American teen-ager, Brandy Stevens. Taken in by her widowed uncle after the traumatic loss of both her parents, Brandy finds herself steeped in unhappiness. Not only does she find living on a farm very lonely, but her misery is further deepened when her cousins-particularly the girls-give her the cold shoulder. In a desperate attempt to win at least the boys’ affection. Brandy ignores all the moral strictures she has been taught, and dares to tread forbidden ground. Indeed, by the time she is finished, Brandy’s hunger for affection becomes so all-consuming that there seems hardly anything she won’t try in order to attain it.
DOG-LOVING COUSIN-the story of one young girl for whom seeking affection becomes a way of life, her norm. A story that holds a lesson for our society.
“Gosh, you’ve got nice clothes,” Jane was babbling enviously.
They were nice, but I’ve never known there was another type.
“They’re okay. Don’t you wear any?”
“Sure, but not as nice as those,” the younger girl sighed, lifting up her plain cotton dress to show me her cheap cotton panties. “Can I try a pair of yours on?”
“They wouldn’t fit,” I said hastily, not meaning to be rude, and continued to put my slips, bras, and pantyhose in the drawer.
Jane shut up like she’d been slapped. She sat there quietly, watching me, for a while longer. Then getting up without a word, she wandered from the room. I could picture her running to Alice and Mary Ann to tell them about my nice things.
