Nadio and his twin sister, Noelle, always had a unique bond. And somehow, Keeley Shipley fit perfectly into their world. But when Keeley spends the summer in England, she comes home changed, haunted by a dark memory. As she and Nadio fall in love, they try to hide it from Noelle, who’s jealously guarding a secret of her own. Slowly, a life-long friendship begins to crack under the crushing weight of past trauma, guarded secrets, jealousy, obsession . . . and an unexpected love that could destroy them. “Intense and lyrical, Heather Duffy Stone’s story about transformations wrenches the heart and then puts it back together again, stronger and better for having read this book.”—Carrie Jones, author of Need Friendship, love, and unexpected secrets
