Nessa Moore has sought reliable stability since her father’s death. Now, she’s over it. Tired of always being the mature adult, constantly worrying about her alcoholic mother, stressing about being able to afford college, she wants to have one normal, carefree, fun summer. And be more like her best friend Jacie.

Jacie Hayes is struggling to overcome the recent breakup with her first love. The one that ripped out her heart and left her devastated. Frustrated and bored with her own self pity, Jacie wants nothing more than to forget about Dylan, to go back to her old ways, her old self. To be the fun loving, live-in-the-moment girl who gossips about boys and sips mojitos.

Best friends since childhood, Nessa and Jacie have been through all their ups and downs together. No matter what. Now, the summer before their senior year of high school, they accept an invitation from Jacie’s aunt to join her in Lockwood Quay, New Jersey, a summer beach getaway.

Determined to make this their best, most memorable, summer yet, both girls push their own boundaries, accept new challenges, and find themselves keeping secrets from each other.

But sometimes, stepping out of your comfort zone has consequences.

And some secrets can’t be forgiven.

Or forgotten.

I am so lost in my own thoughts that I almost don’t hear it, the tiny giggle. It escapes again and I immediately recognize Jacie’s laugh.  Her flushed face shines in the pale moonlight streaming through the skylight as a bedroom door opens. 


Her eyes flash up to meet mine, her merriment poorly concealed.  Her topknot has slipped. Dave comes into view behind her. Jacie smiles at me sheepishly. I stare at her and Dave, wide-eyed. Something in my stomach sinks. I feel hollow.
