This thriller set on the coast of Maine is a perfect beach read. Maine native Avery has always admired the Loman family’s status and wealth. When she meets Sadie Loman they become fast friends, delighting in their different upbringings. As Avery grows up and tries to improve her situation, her life becomes intertwined with Sadie’s in many ways. It’s up to Avery to unravel the mystery of what happened one summer at the guest house. This book is a good thriller–fast-paced and twisty, but it also has something to say about identity and friendship.
