Littleport, Maine, has always felt like two separate towns: an ideal vacation enclave for the wealthy, whose summer homes line the coastline; and a simple harbor community for the year-round residents whose livelihoods rely on service to the visitors.
Typically, fierce friendships never develop between a local and a summer girl—but that’s just what happens with visitor Sadie Loman and Littleport resident Avery Greer. Each summer for almost a decade, the girls are inseparable—until Sadie is found dead. While the police rule the death a suicide, Avery can’t help but feel there are those in the community, including a local detective and Sadie’s brother, Parker, who blame her. Someone knows more than they’re saying, and Avery is intent on clearing her name, before the facts get twisted against her.
Quotes from The Last House Guest
Torn between two worlds—the one in front of her and the one in her head that she was continually trying to uncover.
But that was the thing about loving someone—it only counted when you knew their flaws and did it anyway.
We were invisible, as we were taught to be.
Promises made without clarity of thought still counted. A careless yes and you were bound.
