Grades 9 – 12
Quinn’s best friend Lynn died in a car crash that she feels responsible for, and feels she should be punished for it. She is eager to get away from her hometown for awhile, and stay with her aunt Annie, whom she affectionately called Antsie, on the Jersey shore for the summer. There she meets Malcolm, a musician who has been dealing with his own issues. Nevertheless, she feels herself falling for him, and wonders if this is the new beginning she’s been looking for all along.
