A beautifully written novel about love, class differences, and betrayal playing out over the course of a fractured American family’s Long Island summer from  #1 New York Times bestselling author Ann Brashares, author of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series.

“A gorgeously written novel on love, loss and family.” —NICOLA YOON, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything
 

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.

Ray and Sasha lived in the same beach house for 17 years, but they have never met one another. Once upon a time, Ray’s mother was married to Sasha’s dad, but the marriage ended on bad terms as they can no longer stand each other. The only thing left of their damaged relationship is their three children, Quinn, Emma and Mattie. During the summer, the lives of these two families become entangled with one another. Secrets are revealed, relationship are repaired, and sparks begin to fly. This was the most confusing book I have ever read. It was written in the perspective of five characters and there was nothing to signify who was speaking. Every chapter is in at least three different character’s perspectives. To make matters worse, the plot was all over the place. I would never recommend this book to anyone.
