Told from multiple viewpoints, follows teenaged friends Nia, KeeKee, Faith, and Eve as they experience unexpected life changes the summer a hotel developer purchases their Caribbean community's beloved beach.
Change is coming to Pinder Street after a hotel developer purchases their community's beloved beach. When Eve's dad is diagnosed with cancer, she wants nothing more than to trade her worries for some red lipstick and a carefree night. Faith only has eyes for the one she can't have-- but even he can't protect from the secrets she hides. After a horrible betrayal, KeeKee must choose between being right and losing everyone she loves. A summer art program might be Nia's way to escape her overprotective mother, but freedom comes with a terrible price. Ready or not, it is time for these four friends to face the sun. -- adapted from jacket
