Summary

Set in the Cape Cod village of Provincetown, Massachusetts, this is the story of 17-year-old Jackie's struggle to overcome her grief and confusion after her best friend is carried out to sea during a storm.

Lorna had been the dynamic leader of a tight-knit group of four friends - Jackie, Lucas, and Finn, and herself - and her disappearance changed the dynamics between the surviving three. Jackie is still hiding her feelings for Finn, who had been Lorna's boyfriend, and Lucas has withdrawn to the point where Jackie wonders if he is keeping a secret even larger than her own. Meanwhile the future looms, and Jackie fears leaving the only life she has known.

Predictable

Plot line was good but felt a bit predictable. None of the plots “shockers” surprised me. They were able to be guessed before they were said.
