This is another perfect summer read, albeit very different from Clegg's : )
In Sarah Addison Allen's latest, Emily Benedict has lost everything. Her mother is dead and her only remaining family -- her grandfather -- is a man she's never met. As Emily arrives in Mullaby, North Carolina (the town her mother left behind years ago), Emily is faced with family secrets and whispered rumors of one of the town's most tragic events. In spite of this, Emily makes a friend in Julia Winterson, a woman who knows all too well the pain of being an unpopular teenager in a small town, but a woman who also knows how to make the best of what you're given. A sweet and charming read with a hint of something magical!
I loved this book. It was my first by Sarah Addison Allen and it was just wonderful. (As an aside, my sixteen year old sister loved it as well!)
