Elizabeth Valchar-pretty, popular, and perfect-wakes up the morning after her eighteenth birthday party on her family's yacht, where she'd been celebrating with her six closest friends. A persistent thumping noise has roused her. When she goes to investigate, what she finds will change everything she thought she knew about her life, her friends, and everything in between. As Liz begins to unravel the circumstances surrounding her birthday night, she will find that no one around her, least of all Liz herself, was perfect-or innocent. Critically acclaimed author Jessica Warman brings readers along on a roller-coaster ride of a mystery, one that is also a heartbreaking character study, a touching romance, and ultimately a hopeful tale of redemption, love, and letting go.
This book really surprised me. Not what I had expected at all. A very nice unsuspected depth to the writing. The main character is quiet the "brat". She is likable none the less. Once she comes to terms with her past and what she has done she is really lovable. I think that teens, no matter their background would enjoy this storyline. There are a lot of life lessons to be gained form this journey of the heart & mind. An excellent "settle the score" kind of book. A very good read.
