    Sixteen-year-old Georgia Avis knows her exquisite beauty will take her places. The one place she wants to go is Aspera, a gated resort in her town that caters to the wealthy and powerful who want absolute privacy. Despite the warnings from her late mother, Georgia makes her way to the resort, determined to become an Aspera Girl. Along the road, she discovers the raped and mangled body of 13-year-old Ashley James, the sister of classmate Nora. Even as Georgia lands a job at Aspera and attracts the attention of its owners, she teams up with Nora to unearth what really happened to Ashley, a sweet romance blossoming between Georgia and Nora in the process. The unexpected truth is discovered only as they delve into a twisting labyrinth of deceit and cover-ups. Summers examines the privileged decadence, predatory activities, and subtle grooming that tempt young things into believing they are precious and special. Brutal and bold in its telling, Summers' account of Georgia's inability to grasp that her dreams are on a course to becoming nightmares yields a raw and crushing page-turner. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Best-seller Summers' Epstein-tinged thriller will be on the radar of her sizable fan base. Ready the waiting lists! Grades 9-12. Copyright 2022 Booklist Reviews.
