A sex scandal rocks the sheltered world of a private Vermont school, affecting students, parents and teachers alike. The story moves quickly as Shreve switches the narrative from one character to the next allowing the reader to see how each person involved views the situation. As the events unfold it becomes clear that blame and guilt are equally split amongst these characters and how this affects all of them makes for a dramatic and moving novel. This previous Lovereading author of the month has delivered a great story yet again.
