The summer, California coast setting makes this a fun, winter read. The plot utilized a nice twist, with Matt's demise so early in the story being totally unexpected. Nice descriptions of Anna's anxiety as she desperately tries to move forward after Matt's death. Just the right amount of conflict between Anna and Frankie as Anna holds on to a secret that best friends should never hide from each other. The usual game of guy conquest was pretty standard for YA reads, but knowing that Anna's secret would be eventually revealed kept me in suspense until the end.
