This week I am going to leave you with the cover, the information, and two words.
A book that takes place in North Carolina? I'm down. Let's do this.
Note that this video has nothing to do with the book, but it has everything to do with North Carolina. That and this guy lives down the road from me so might as well promote local artists, even if they are convicted felons.

Fifteen-year-old Isabelle Scott loves her life by the boardwalk on the supposed wrong side of the tracks in North Carolina. But when tragedy strikes, a social worker sends her to live with a long-lost uncle and his preppy privileged family. Isabelle is taken away from everything she's ever known, and, unfortunately, inserting her into the glamorous lifestyle of Emerald Cove doesn't go so well. Her cousin Mirabelle Monroe isn't thrilled to share her life with an outsider, and, in addition to dealing with all the rumors and backstabbing that lurk beneath their classmates' Southern charm, a secret is unfolding that will change both girls' lives forever.
