Overview

For fans of We Were Liars and from the bestselling author of Dark and Shallow Lies comes a  paranormal thriller about a seventeen-year-old girl returning to camp to uncover the truth of what really happened there twelve years ago, the night her mother drowned.

Twelve years ago, Avril's mother drowned at Whisper Cove theater, just off the rocky Connecticut coastline. It was ruled an accident, but Avril's never been totally convinced. Local legend claims that the women in the waves-ghosts from old whaling stories-called her mother into the ocean with their whispering. Because, as they say at Whisper Cove, what the sea wants, the sea will have.

While Avril doesn't believe in ghosts, she knows there are lots of different ways for places, and people, to be haunted. She's spent the past twelve years trying to make sense of the strange bits and pieces she does remember from the night she lost her mother. Stars falling into the sea. A blinding light. A tight grip on her wrist. The odd sensation of flying. Now, at seventeen, she's returning to Whisper Cove for the first time, and she might finally unravel the mystery of what really happened.

As Avril becomes more involved with camp director Willa and her mysterious son Cole, Whisper Cove reveals itself to her. Distances seem to shift in the strange fog. Echoes of long-past moments bounce off the marsh. And Avril keeps meeting herself-and her dead mother-late at night, at the edge of the ocean.

The truth Avril seeks is ready to be discovered. But it will come at a terrible cost.

A teen returns to the site of her mother’s drowning looking for clues and memories.

Seventeen-year-old Avril is in Whisper Cove on the Long Island Sound for a prestigious one-month acting camp. It’s no coincidence that she sought out this particular location, where her mother drowned 12 years ago and Avril herself nearly died. All she remembers is waking up in the hospital. Whisper Cove proves to be a place unlike any other, its thick fog enveloping the night and swirling through Avril’s clouded memories of her past. When she meets Cole Culver, the son of her mother’s college friend Willa, their connection is instant and electric. The pair become inseparable, eventually untangling the terrifying truth about what happened to Avril’s mother. The atmosphere of Whisper Cove is palpable, the fog-laden shore haunting and heavy at night. Sain deftly writes Avril’s confusion, desperation, and fear so that readers experience everything alongside her. Her friendships with fellow campers Val and Lex in particular are close in that way that only short-term shared experiences provide, and their connections are incredibly touching. What truly anchors the story, however, is the intense chemistry between Avril and Cole: Some of Sain’s best writing comes from their charged interactions. Most characters are presumed White; some cast members are queer.

Sorrowful, haunting, and romantic; a true page-turner. (Mystery. 14-18)
