Stella lives with her great-aunt Louise on Cape Cod, where the house is always tidy, and even though Louise is not very demonstrative, Stella feels right at home. Angel, a foster child, lives with them too, but Stella and Angel don’t get along at all. Then one day, the girls return home to find Louise dead in her chair. The two girls know that if anyone finds out, they will be put back into the child welfare system. So they work together to create a plan that will let them stay in the tidy little house near the sea. It would take a lot of work, because they would have to cover for Louise at her job of caring for four cottages on the property, and they would have to take care of the dead body too! It’s a challenge for two girls who never got along in the first place and are headed in different directions when the summer is done. This hope-filled book starts with a death and strangers and ends with hope and family.
