by Christina June

A bond between siblings, in this case stepsiblings, sometimes comes from a shared secret. At the end of the school year, 16-year-old Tatum found herself in a legal predicament: a wrong place, wrong time scenario. The repercussions left her with a summer filled with mandatory community service, family-imposed house arrest and her best friend shipped off to boarding school. The relationship she had with her stepmother and stepsister was never one of camaraderie, until secrets from the past and present unveiled themselves, leaving an opportunity for all of the family members to gain a better understanding of each other.
