Summary

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah Dessen comes a big-hearted, sweeping novel about a girl who reconnects with a part of her family she hasn't seen since she was a little girl--and falls in love, all over the course of a magical summer.

Emma Saylor doesn't remember a lot about her mother, who died when Emma was twelve. But she does remember the stories her mom told her about the big lake that went on forever, with cold, clear water and mossy trees at the edges.

Now it's just Emma and her dad, and life is good, if a little predictable...until Emma is unexpectedly sent to spend the summer with her mother's family that she hasn't seen since she was a little girl.

When Emma arrives at North Lake, she realizes there are actually two very different communities there. Her mother grew up in working class North Lake, while her dad spent summers in the wealthier Lake North resort. The more time Emma spends there, the more it starts to feel like she is also divided into two people. To her father, she is Emma. But to her new family, she is Saylor, the name her mother always called her.

Then there's Roo, the boy who was her very best friend when she was little. Roo holds the key to her family's history, and slowly, he helps her put the pieces together about her past. It's hard not to get caught up in the magic of North Lake--and Saylor finds herself falling under Roo's spell as well.

For Saylor, it's like a whole new world is opening up to her. But when it's time to go back home, which side of her--Emma or Saylor--will win out?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Emma Saylor Payne has always been Emma to her dad's side of the family. Her mom called her Saylor, but her mom, an addict who'd been in and out of rehab, has been dead for five years now and was divorced from Emma's father five years before that. But then a twist of fate leads Emma to spend the summer at her mom's childhood home North Lake. At North Lake, Emma though everyone here knows her as Saylor reconnects with the family she hardly knows and learns about the mother she can barely remember and the place where her parents met, which is divided sharply into two worlds: the wealthy vacation spot her father visited and her mother's working-class community. And she begins to realize that she's not the girl she or her father has always thought she was. With one foot in her father's world and one in her mother's, Emma Saylor tentatively navigates issues of class, addiction, and identity. Hers is a summertime journey of self-discovery, family secrets, and first love, and it's exactly where Dessen shines brightest.HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Dessen, a reliable best-seller, a Margaret A. Edwards Award winner, an all-around big deal do you even need us to tell you?--Maggie Reagan Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Dessen explores her signature themes of family and romance in this layered contemporary novel driven by anxiety-prone protagonist Emma Saylor's curiosity about her late mother's life. Emma's mother, who succumbed to an overdose in 2011, left Emma and her father clinging to each other, her father deeply reluctant to discuss Emma's mother and her family. Years later, unexpected circumstances land Emma, now 17, on the shores of the lake her mother grew up on for a several-week stay with maternal grandmother Mimi. There, she finds two communities (one working-class, one wealthy), spends time with cousins she didn't know she had, and meets the handsome boy whose father was once her mother's best friend-all while hearing stories, seeing photos, and discovering long-held secrets about her mother's wild teenage years and a single, terrible loss. Dessen takes her time building Emma's life on the lake, developing each familial relationship from the ground up, and illuminating layers of newness and personal, familial, and class conflict as Emma searches for bits of her past. A rich, patient story about a teen girl who craves family and an understanding of her roots after suffering a tragic loss. Ages 13-up. Agent: Leigh Feldman, Leigh Feldman Literary.
