Life is meant to be savored, but that’s not easy with no family, limited prospects, and a past you’d rather not talk about. Still, Callie Smith doesn’t know how to feel when she discovers she has a brother and a sister - Malcolm, who grew up with affection, wealth, and privilege, and Keira, a streetwise 12-year-old. Despite her trepidation, she moves into the grand family home with her siblings and grandfather on the shores of Lake Washington, hoping just maybe this will be the start of a whole new life. But starting over can be messy.

The book was enjoyable except for the clumsily written obligatory sex scenes which I fast forwarded through and didn't miss anything. The narrator had apparently been told her diction needed work, so she was very careful to pronounce the word "to" very clearly, which made the reading very stilted and awkward. I will not skip listening to samples in the future.
