What is this book about?
Milly, Aubrey and Jonah Story are cousins, but they don’t know each other well.

Except, they’ve never met their rich grandmother and she disinherited their parents over 20 years ago.
Their parents force them to go to help get them back in contact with their mother. But, Milly, Aubrey and Jonah know there is more to the story than meets the eye. As the three get to know each other, they realize the island holds a lot of secrets. It’s time for the cousins to know the truth about what happened all those years ago.
