About The Book
A teen girl’s summer escape turns into a dangerous game of cat and mouse with her new best frenemy in this novel perfect for fans of One of Us Is Lying and The Cheerleaders.
Nola wants nothing more than a summer on her own—and a job at an upscale Maine coast resort sounds ideal. Waitressing three meals a day, with lots of beach time in between, gets her some much-needed freedom from her less than sunny reality, especially her younger sister Song’s ongoing chemo treatment. This summer is the chance for Nola to do something for herself and make new friends.
Enter Carly, the perfect pal, full of jokes, ideas, and energy. She’s had plenty of experience spending time away from her mysterious family and shows Nola the newly independent ropes. But Carly is much more complicated than the usual summer buddy. Her mood swings leave Nola off-balance and a little afraid, and with Carly, everything is a competition, including Nola’s time and attention…which makes fragile Song her biggest rival.
