For fans of One of Us Is Lying, this novel set during the summer in the small tourist town of Gold Fork features four teens at very different crossroads in their lives, all sharing one goal—escape Gold Fork by any means necessary.
In a place like Gold Fork, sometimes a secret is the only thing that’s really yours.
And Ana, Erik, Davis, and Georgie know a thing or two about secrets. Bound together by a horrible accident from their pasts, the friendship forged years ago in a youth group led by Davis’s pastor mother has managed to last through high school. They don’t agree on much, but, in a town full of weekenders, they all know what it’s like to be a dead ender—someone fated to stay trapped in a tourist town for the rest of their life.
Each of them has a plan to get out, but it won’t be easy. And now, with an arsonist working his way through the town and setting it ablaze, moving ahead with their lives will be even harder.
These four dead enders are about to find out just how much there is to lose in Gold Fork.
