When high school senior Noah Gallagher and his adopted teenage sister, Lo, go to live with their grandmother in her island cottage for the summer, they don’t expect much in the way of adventure. Noah has landed a marine biology internship, and Lo wants to draw and paint, perhaps even to vanquish her struggles with bulimia.

Kind of unsure as to how to review this one. It was really dark and heavy in some places, but also seemed like it was written for middle readers in others. I'll have to think on this one a bit more.
