Written by Joanne Vruno, mother of my dearest friend, this book is the perfect book for summer reading. Set in Northern Minnesota, you get the feel of what it's like to live in a small town by the lake. The mystery surrounding the child that the main character tom, finds keeps the pages turning. I finished in two short days, I couldn't put it down! Eagerly awaiting her next book!
