"The plot gracefully unfolds to a stunning climax that forces the characters--and readers--to reconsider the nature of love, justice, and forgiveness."

After losing the previous summer to the shock and grief of her mother's murder, Tate McCoy is putting her life back together, aiming to make the most of her seventeenth summer. Her self-rescue draws on several resources--an aunt who makes the best camping buddy, a vegan best friend named Kale, a crush on her swimming instructor, volunteer work, an encouraging English teacher, and an irreverent sense of humor. But a horrifying discovery about her mother's death puts Tate's resilience to the test yet again.
