Synopsis

A warm June evening, a local tradition: the students of Nantucket High have gathered for a bonfire on the beach. But what begins as a graduation night celebration ends in tragedy after a horrible car crash leaves the driver of the car, Penny Alistair, dead, and her twin brother in a coma. The other passengers, Penny's boyfriend Jake and her friend Demeter, are physically unhurt - but the emotional damage is overwhelming, and questions linger about what happened before Penny took the wheel.

As summer unfolds, startling truths are revealed about the survivors and their parents - secrets kept, promises broken, hearts betrayed. Elin Hilderbrand explores the power of community, family, and honesty, and proves that even from the ashes of sorrow, new love can still take flight.

    Love her books

    I have had a few Elin Hilderbrand's books sitting on my bookshelves unread for a while (along with a thousand of others) and after reading this one, they won't be sitting much longer. I totally enjoyed this book. I love her writing and fell in love with Nantucket. Her descriptions of things on the island and beaches made me want to be there. There are wonderful strong characters and I wanted to know them, you can't help but like them, flaws and all. The book starts with the tragic accident at the end of the school year. What happened? Four teens who have known each other forever, one now on the outside of things, the remaining three are the pride of Nantucket, go from being at a graduation party having a blast to their lives forever altered by the accident that only three survived. The book that spans about three months gives us their lives and the lives of their families, how they cope, how their families cope and how it all affects them. This book is very hard to put down, I didn't want to stop reading. Her writing is magic, the story is weaved so well, I felt I knew the characters,and felt their emotions along with them. I now look forward to reading more of her books and have already bought the new one "the rumor" that just came out
