Summer for Sasha and Ray means the sprawling old house on Long Island. Since they were children, they’ve shared almost everything—reading the same books, running down the same sandy footpaths to the beach, eating peaches from the same market, laughing around the same sun-soaked dining table. Even sleeping in the same bed, on the very same worn cotton sheets. But they’ve never met.
Sasha’s dad was once married to Ray’s mom, and together they had three daughters: Emma, the perfectionist; Mattie, the beauty; and Quinn, the favorite. But the marriage crumbled and the bitterness lingered. Now there are two new families—and neither one will give up the beach house that holds the memories, happy and sad, of summers past.
The choices we make come back to haunt us; the effect on our destinies ripples out of our control…or does it? This summer, the lives of Sasha, Ray, and their siblings intersect in ways none of them ever dreamed, in a novel about family relationships, keeping secrets, and most of all, love.
So I would live in a small-ass apartment if it meant I could also afford a beach house, especially because my job as a teacher gives me summers off. It is seriously my dream to spend the summers on a beach somewhere. Honestly, it doesn’t even need to be the beach, I would love to have a nice little vacation home on a lake somewhere. Anyway, sorry, I love vacation homes as a setting, and I find the two disparate families who both spend time there very interesting. I loved the 4 Traveling Pants books (no, I do consider the last book part of the series–I just know something bad happens and that isn’t how I want to remember the series). I’ll definitely be keeping my eyes out for this one.
