This emotional story goes straight to the core question of right and wrong in today’s world. The multi layered details are peeled away and the story unfolds predominantly through the narratives of Nina Browning, wealthy privileged wife of Kirk Browning, one of Nashville’s golden sons and Tom Volpe, a blue collar, single dad who works hard to maintain a decent life for his teenage daughter, Lyla.
The Brownings and Volpes worlds collide one weekend as a result of poor decisions on the part of both of their teenagers. Lyla and Finch, the teenage son of the Brownings, attend Windsor Academy; she is on a scholarship for high school and he has attended since kindergarten. The story is much more than just the privileged and wealthy son versus the lower income, scholarship girl. Neither teenager understands the far reaching consequences of their actions nor how many other people will become involved as a result of poor choices and the use of social media.
Read this story so relevant to our current times and find out exactly how widespread the effects of their decisions become! A terrific contemporary read with depth and complexity!
