Camp Alpine Lake is the only place where Goldie Easton feels safe.

She’s always had a special connection to the place, even before she was old enough to attend. The camp is the lifeline of Roxwood, the small town where she lives. Alpine Lake provides jobs, money, and prestige to the region. But few Roxwood locals get to reap the rewards of living so close to the glam summer camp, with its five-figure tuition and rich kids who have been sent there for eight weeks by their powerful parents. Goldie’s one of them.

Even with her “townie” background, Goldie has never felt more at home than she does at camp, and now she’s back as a counselor, desperate for summer to start and her best friends, Ava and Imogen, to arrive. Because Goldie has a terrible dark secret she’s been keeping, and she is more in need of their comfort than ever.

But Goldie’s not the only person at camp who has been lying. When a teen turns up dead in the lake late one night, she knows that the death couldn’t have been an accident. She also knows that Ava was at the lake that same night.

What did Ava see and what does she know? Why hasn’t she said anything to Goldie about the death? Worse–what did Ava do?

But asking questions offers no answer, only broken bonds of lifelong friendship, with hidden danger and betrayals deeper than Goldie ever imagined.
