Gemma had her summer all planned out, but it takes sharp turn when she gets dumped and finds herself back in the Hamptons after a five-year absence. Being there puts her at risk of bumping into Hallie, her former best friend (that is, before Gemma ruined her life). But people don’t hold grudges forever. Do they? Gemma intends on making amends, but a small case of mistaken identity causes the people she knew years ago - including Hallie and her dreamy brother Josh - to believe she’s someone else. As though the summer wasn’t complicated enough already.

While the story was very cute, the narrator ruined it for me. Her constant swallowing while reading made listening to the story unbearable. I listen to a lot of audible books, and have never heard a narrator swallow loudly throughout the story. With a different narrator, this book would be much better.
