"A nervy, intense, and expertly crafted thriller that kept me hooked page after page. Dark secrets? Summer camp setting? Complex teen girls? Murder? Count me in. A simply stunning book." —Kathleen Glasgow, New York Times bestselling author of Girl in Pieces, You'd Be Home Now, and The Agathas

From New York Times bestselling author Jessica Goodman comes a twisty new thriller about three best friends, one elite summer camp, and the dark secrets that lead to a body in the lake.

Camp Alpine Lake is the only place where Goldie Easton feels safe.
She’s always had a special connection to the place, even before she was old enough to attend. The camp is the lifeline of Roxwood, the small town she lives in. Alpine Lake provides jobs, money and prestige to the region. Few Roxwood locals, though, get to reap the rewards of living so close to the glam summer that camp, with its five-figure tuition and rich kids who have been dumped there for eight weeks by their powerful parents. Goldie's one of them.
Even with her "townie" background, Goldie has never felt more at home at camp and now she’s back as a counselor, desperate for summer to start and her best friends, Ava and Imogen, to arrive. Because Goldie has a terrible dark secret she’s been keeping and she is more in need of the comfort than ever.
But Goldie’s not the only person at camp who has been lying. When a teen turns up dead in the lake late one night, she knows that the death couldn’t have been an accident. She also knows that Ava was at the lake that same night.
What did Ava see and what does she know? Why hasn’t she said anything to Goldie about the death? Worse—what did Ava do?
But asking questions offers no answers, only broken bonds of lifelong friendship, with hidden danger and betrayals deeper than Goldie ever imagined.

Interesting Summer Read. Right off the bat, I'm going to blatantly state that the engrossing cover really drew me in, but the story made me keep reading until the very end. I love reading anything along the lines of mystery so I was even more delighted to begin my merry journey of reading this book. Since it's a hot summer time and the book is set in the summer time as well, it'll provide you with the perfect chill to fight off this year's summer heat. Thus, is why I was super jacked up to read this book. Hence, a pretty excellent book to add to your TBR summer reading list. If there's anything that I love more than a good mystery, it's a good friendship. Furthermore the perspective of having acess to both the present and past really kept the pacing very quick and spellbinding to me. So the addictive writing easily kept me hooked. You'll keep guessing whose the murderer until the end.
