It’s a local tradition for the students of Nantucket High: a graduation night bonfire to celebrate the end of the school year. But this night will end in tragedy after a car crash leaves the driver, Penny Alistair, dead and her twin brother in a coma. The other passengers, Penny's boyfriend, Jake, and her friend Demeter, survive but the emotional damage is overwhelming, and questions linger about what happened before Penny took the wheel. As summer unfolds, startling truths are revealed about the survivors and their parents...secrets that could reopen old wounds.
Elin Hilderbrand explores the power of community, family and honesty, and proves that even from the ashes of sorrow, new love can still take flight.

Perhaps I was expecting so much more. I found this novel boring in spots and much too long, very predictable.
