For Cricket Thompson, the summer before her senior year looks like it will be nearly perfect. Her school Lacrosse team has just won the championship game, and her best friend Jules Clayton’s family has invited her to spend the summer on Nantucket Island. A summer on Nantucket means not only a great time with the Claytons, but a summer without a crappy babysitting job, and without having to deal with her fathers new marriage, and her mothers withdrawal from normalcy.
When the Claytons are unexpectedly shattered by a death, everything changes. On Nantucket independently, working and living as a maid at the Cranberry Inn, Cricket does her best to stick to a motto of “lie low, look good, and learn”. From the beginning of the summer when all of Crickets plans fall apart along with her relationship with Jules, to the end of the summer, Cricket gains a lot more than an excellent vacation by falling in love with the one person she knew she should have stay away from.
