August St. Clair is still in high school as the book’s numbing opening sets the scene; chased by a possible rapist at her high school graduation party at the beach, she leaps off a cliff, crashing into the icy ocean never to be heard from again. Clay Moorehouse, her boyfriend, spends the next ten years in prison for her murder. When a young woman shows up in town claiming to be August, it sets in motion a cascading series of events forcing the townspeople to question what lengths they will go to make sure that the truth is never revealed. When a long-buried secret suddenly resurfaces, it threatens to turn the lives of everyone involved inside out.
