In a world of mansions, expensive prep schools, and elite colleges, where money means favors and the right price will buy a ticket into or out of just about any situation, Trent Moreau is living easy.
Drugs, parties, breaking and entering, traffic violations, property damage . . . it’s nothing for Trent’s father to swoop in and buy his son’s way out of trouble. Only this time, he and his brother have gone too far.
After ruining one of his father’s executive gatherings, Crewe is sent to rehab, and Trent is forced to live on campus (and on a budget) under the watchful eye of a roommate who reports back to (and is likely getting paid by) Trent’s father.
When he’s caught tampering with files at Crewe’s facility, Trent is assigned (more) community service hours to be fulfilled by spending time with seventeen-year-old Summer Evans, resident psychopath.
The previous year, Summer’s best friend was found dead in her backyard swimming pool. Summer, the only known witness, remembers nothing about that night. Because foul play was suspected and she was a minor, Summer and her family agreed to rehab in lieu of a prison sentence.
But the more time Trent spends with Summer, and the more he learns about the events surrounding her friend’s mysterious death, the less sense it all makes.
What if Summer isn’t guilty at all?
What if she’s innocent, and he can prove it?
As Trent quietly falls for the extraordinary artist, his investigation is going to take a dramatic turn, sending him spiraling deeper into the egotism and entitlement edging his own privileged lifestyle.
