Description

Everyone in Shallow Pond knows the Bunting Sisters. Nobody knows their Secrets.

Annie is the oldest. The sickly one who gave up on her own life so she could raise her sisters after their parents died. Gracie is the wild child. She wants a man so bad, she'll do anything it takes to get one. Barbara, the youngest, hates being constantly mistaken for her sisters. She wants nothing more than to finish senior year and get out of Shallow Pond--before she succumbs to her unwanted attraction to the new boy in town, Zach Faraday.

When Annie's enigmatic illness takes a turn for the worse, Barbara begins to search for the truth of her family's past. But Shallow Pond offers only lies and deceit. The one thing Barbara can trust is her halting connection to Zach--an unsettling bond that may be the answer to a mystery that doesn't want to be solved.
