There are certainly a lot of things going on in this book and it all happens in just one summer. There are back stories for some of the characters, as well. Most of the characters are teenagers doing what teenagers do. It all comes crashing down in the end when racial tensions, environmental concerns and a plot for revenge meet head on.
A pretty good story that I found interesting and entertaining. The whole story seems to be crashing towards a pretty bad ending for the characters. The author gives you a hint that someone gets shot. My intuitions kept going back and forth as to who this character would be. Definitely a sad ending.
Thanks to St. Martin's Press for approving my request and to Net Galley for providing me with a free e-galley in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
