Imagine a family, Mayflower descendants, perfect, blond, and rich enough to own a private island off Martha’s Vineyard. Like Shakespeare’s Lear, the patriarch of the family pits his three daughters against each other for the inheritance. They in turn enlist their older children, four cousins (The Liars) who have spent every summer together on the island, to curry favor with their grandfather. Something terrible happened during the Liars’ fifteenth summer and Cadence, the oldest grandchild, cannot remember what it was and why she now suffers debilitating migraines. No one will tell her, doctor’s orders, what it was. She must discover it on her own. The revelation is shocking; I never saw it coming.This is a quick read and you will want to race to the end.


Today a reader, tomorrow a leader.
