In this contemporary retelling of The Great Gatsby, by comedian Sara Benincasa, a teenage girl becomes entangled in the romance and drama of a Hamptons social circle and is implicated in a scandal that shakes the summer community.

When Naomi Rye arrives in the Hamptons to spend the summer with her socialite mother, she fully expects to be miserable mingling with the sons and daughters of her mother's mega-rich friends. Yet Naomi finds herself unexpectedly drawn to her mysterious and beautiful next-door neighbor, Jacinta, a Hamptons "It" girl who throws wild, lavish parties that are the talk of the town. But Jacinta is hiding something big, and events unfold with tragic consequences.

From the Back Cover:

Everyone loves a good scandal.

Naomi Rye usually dreads spending the summer with her socialite mother at her East Hampton home. And this year is no different. Naomi sticks out like a sore thumb with her Chicago accent and her Doc Martens, and she has no patience for the snooty sons and daughters of the mega rich.

But despite her reluctance to join the lavish social circle, Naomi is captivated by her mysterious next-door neighbor, Jacinta. The extravagant parties Jacinta throws are the social events of the summer, and loner Naomi suddenly finds herself with not only a new best friend but a possibly-could-be-probably boyfriend. But Jacinta has her own reasons for drawing close to Naomi, and they include the beautiful and untouchable Delilah Fairweather, a family friend of Naomi's and Upper East Side royalty.

As the summer days slip by, Naomi discovers that Jacinta's carefully constructed world is hiding something huge, a secret that could undo everything. And Naomi must decide how far she is willing to be pulled into this web of lies and deception before she is unable to escape.
