Mystery surrounds the town of Summertime, Indiana, where fifteen-year-old Tommy Walker and his little sister are sent to live with relatives they’ve never met. Tommy soon makes friends with Finn Wilds, a rebellious local who lives with his volatile and abusive stepfather, who also happens to be the town’s sheriff.
Finn invites Tommy to late night meetings in the woods, where Tommy gets to know two girls. He forms a special and unique connection with both girls. The meetings become a place where the kids, who don’t fit in at school, or home can finally belong. As the group of friends begin to unravel clues to a cold case murder and kidnapping— they learn the truth is darker and closer than they ever imagined. Even if they live to tell, will anyone believe them?
It’s been a while since I’ve read a YA book, so I was kind of reserved about this one. I decided to give it a go, because I liked the title!! after that I liked the cover, and guess what??… I liked the book!!!!
The book is told by two points of views, by Tommy and Finn. We first meet Tommy in a very unfortunate situation that ends up getting him an his sister living with a unknown uncle and aunt, in a small town of Indiana
The friendships star when Tommy is somehow involved in a cold case from years before, but the budding friendships, the coming of age moments, the mistakes from the teenage years are all engaging and turn this book in a page turner.
It is fast paced but very engaging. And just like the title suggests, (or at least it did to me) it is a mystery book, and it has its twist and turns that you do not expect.
So all in all, I really recommend this book, and guess what? I’ll be on the look out for more books by R. J. Garcia!
