Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"When Aggi Frank and Max Granger finally admitted their feelings for each other last December, it felt like love was beautiful and endless . . . until it wasn't. A fatal car accident involving their older siblings throws their lives into sudden chaos. And with a restraining order now in place between the two bitter households, Aggi and Max's love runs cold. Being together again seems like a distant fantasy, even though they share the same driveway. Still, Plum Lake is a small town, and staying apart can't last forever. Aggi and Max eventually reunite at a lake-house party and break the ice after a year of silence. But just as they begin to rebuild their relationship, the unthinkable happens, leading them to confront each other and their families in the hope of mending the broken pieces."

    Aggi and Max have grown up next door to each other in homes bordering a lake in North Carolina. Just as their friendship was ripening into romance, tragedy struck their families: Max's older brother was killed in a car accident, and Aggi's older sister killed herself weeks later. Grief turned into animosity as the fathers began a feud that drove a wedge between Aggi and Max. Now they gaze at each other forlornly from a distance, each certain that the other has moved on. Over the course of the novel, told alternately from Aggi's and Max's viewpoints, the circumstances surrounding the double tragedy are slowly revealed. Just as slow is the inevitable rekindling of romance between Aggi and Max. At times, the mutual heartache of the two teens is believable, but the plot tends to veer toward the antic, as when Max spies on Aggi as she works at a college campus. Die-hard romance fans may stick with the story, but it's likely too ponderous and predictable for mainstream readers. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
