Beautifully written but heartbreaking. I think I should have read this when the world wasn't falling apart. The story of two neighborhood teenagers who fall in love and the motives of their parents and their neighborhood that ruin and manipulate the situation. Set in South Carolina, this tale of romance, revenge, ecology and music sets the stage for a tragedy. Slow to unfold, but suspense building as readers wait to see what it's actually building up to. Heartbreaking, powerful, and sad. A book you won't be able to forget!
