about

Una historia sobre la seducción del dinero y el poder. Novela de suspenso acerca de una chica de familia humilde que pasa el verano en compañía de su amiga, de clase adinerada. Durante esa temporada, es testigo de los secretos más oscuros de la familia y debe decidir si sacarlos a la luz, y ser expulsada de ese paraíso con el que siempre ha soñado, o permanecer en silencio y volverse cómplice.


ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

On scholarship at a prestigious East Coast college, ordinary Mabel Dagmar is surprised to befriend her roommate, the beautiful, wild, blue-blooded Genevra Winslow. Ev invites Mabel to spend the summer at Bittersweet, her cottage on the Vermont estate where her family has been holding court for more than a century; it's the kind of place where children twirl sparklers across the lawn during cocktail hour. Mabel falls in love with midnight skinny-dipping, the wet dog smell that lingers near the yachts, and the moneyed laughter that carries across the still lake while fireworks burst overhead. Before she knows it, she has everything she's ever wanted: friendship, a boyfriend, access to wealth, and, most of all, for the first time in her life, the sense that she belongs.

But as Mabel becomes an insider, a terrible discovery leads to shocking violence and reveals what the Winslows may have done to keep their power intact - and what they might do to anyone who threatens them. Mabel must choose: either expose the ugliness surrounding her and face expulsion from paradise, or keep the family's dark secrets and make Ev's world her own.
