Summerland: A Novel
Four juniors are driving home from a graduation party on Nantucket when Penny Alistair loses control of the car. Penny is killed; her twin brother is left in a coma. Penny’s boyfriend, Jake, and friend, Demeter, walk away from the crash, their wounds emotional, deep, and unshakable.
In the aftermath, Jake and his family move halfway around the globe, while Demeter escapes in self-destructive behavior. None of the families can truly move on, as the circumstances that led to the accident stretch all the way back to the first interactions between these four friends and their parents.
