A tragic local mystery from the past is blown wide open when a girl from the poor side of town infiltrates a group of reckless, wealthy boys and uncovers more than she could have imagined.

Everyone in Tenney's Harbor, Maine, knows about the Garrison tragedy, when a house fire killed four of the five family members. Fingers point at Pearl Haskins' father, who was the caretaker of the property, but Pearl doesn't believe it. Pearl's future never held much promise beyond waiting tables at the local country club. This year Tristan, the last surviving Garrison, and his group of affluent and arrogant friends have made a point of sitting in Pearl's section. Befriending the boys could mean getting closer to the truth, clearing her father's name, and giving Tristan the closure he seems to be searching for. But it could also trap Pearl in a sinister web of secrets, lies, and betrayals....
