Sage lives with her flighty mother, who is always dropping one dream to chase another. When her mother packs her off to her great-aunts’ house in Maine for the summer, Sage worries she’s being dropped, too. But she finds warmth, friendship, and a real sense of belonging at Heron Cove. She uncovers a painful family history, but also the strength to help her relatives heal. She also realizes you do not have to give up one home to claim another. This is a tender, compassionate look at one girl’s pivotal summer—and at the powerful love that binds families everywhere.
