Synopsis

Two sisters. A shocking racist incident. The summer that will change both of their lives forever.



Annalie and Margaret are sisters who agree on only one thing: that they have nothing in common.



Annalie is seventeen: sweet, content, and looking forward to a summer of flirting with the most popular boy in school.



Margaret is nineteen: ambitious, a warrior for social justice, and desperate to forget her ex-boyfriend in New York City.



When their family is the victim of a racial attack, Annalie tries to pretend it never happened - but Margaret wants to fight back. Suddenly their relationship - and all the ones around them - are hanging by a thread. And then a crushing secret threatens to tear them apart forever . . .



A beautiful and powerful story about family, identity and the secrets we keep, perfect for fans of Angie Thomas, Nicola Yoon, and Adam Silvera.
