Mary Alice Monroe’s inspired choice to write about the pandemic during the pandemic has paid off in this next installment of her acclaimed Beach House series, which can easily be read as a stand-alone, too. Quarantine isn’t so much an issue as it is a setting in the book, bringing unlikely housemates together…A novel of growing up, saying goodbye to the past, and learning to ask yourself the hard questions, including one of the most vital of all: ‘Who do you really want to be?’

—Kristin Harmel, New York Times bestselling author of The Forest of Vanishing Stars
