Description
A beautifully written novel about love, class differences, and betrayal playing out over the course of a fractured American family's Long Island summer from  #1 New York Times bestselling author Ann Brashares, author of The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series.

"A gorgeously written novel on love, loss and family." -NICOLA YOON, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Everything, Everything
 

Summer for Sasha and Ray means the sprawling old house on Long Island. Since they were children, they've shared almost everything-reading the same books, running down the same sandy footpaths to the beach, eating peaches from the same market, laughing around the same sun-soaked dining table. Even sleeping in the same bed, on the very same worn cotton sheets. But they've never met.

Sasha's dad was once married to Ray's mom, and together they had three daughters: Emma, the perfectionist; Mattie, the beauty; and Quinn, the favorite. But the marriage crumbled and the bitterness lingered. Now there are two new families-and neither one will give up the beach house that holds the memories, happy and sad, of summers past.

The choices we make come back to haunt us; the effect on our destinies ripples out of our control . . . or does it? This summer, the lives of Sasha, Ray, and their siblings intersect in ways none of them ever dreamed, in a novel about family relationships, keeping secrets, and most of all, love.

display_description"A gorgeously written novel on love, loss, and family," raves Nicola Yoon, the bestselling author of Everything, Everything, about this novel from the author of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series. Two teenagers share the same room on alternating weeks at a shared summer house, imagining what it would be like to meet in real life. Previously published as The Whole Thing Together.
For Sasha, summer means time at her family's sprawling old house out on Long Island. For Ray, it's the same. Sasha and Ray aren't related—and they've never met—but long ago, before they were born, Sasha's dad and Ray's mom were married. Then came a bitter divorce, remarriages, and a new generation of children. Now, the two families have an arrangement: use the summerhouse at your designated time and never cross paths.
Sasha and Ray do connect, though, by email—joking around, confiding in one another, forming a friendship. They've shared so much already . . . what would happen if they met in real life?
