When a catastrophic hurricane devastates Stone Cove Island, everyone pulls together to rebuild. 17-year-old Eliza Elliot volunteers to clean out the island's iconic lighthouse and stumbles upon a secret in the wreckage: a handwritten letter. On first glance, it hardly makes sense. But she soon discovers it's an anonymous confession to a 30-year-old crime: the unsolved murder of a local teen named Bess Linsky. Soon Eliza finds herself in the throes of an investigation she never wanted or asked for, and one where everyone is a suspect.

Review:

Praise for Stone Cove Island

A Winter 2014 Kids' Indie Next Pick

"The tension between Eliza's need to [solve the murder] and the possibility that her discoveries could hurt those she loves is mined to brilliant effect, rendering each suspect villainous and sympathetic by turns. [Has] a final, stunning twist . . . Taut and atmospheric."
--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Myers's debut has an interesting plot, is written in a language appropriate for its intended audience, and has an important theme, change, at its center."
--School Library Journal

"This is a stunning debut mystery that will attract young adult and adult readers alike."
--Karen Briggs of Great Northern Books & Hobbies, for Shelf Awareness

"An atmospheric thriller where nothing is as it seems, and everyone has a twisted secret to hide, Stone Cove Island keeps you guessing from page one. It might also make you think twice about what goes on behind closed doors in that quaint little vacation town you love so much."
--Kate Brian, New York Times bestselling author of the Private series

"A classic suspense tale, a Hitchcock movie for teens. I read it in one hungry gulp."
--Natalie Standiford, bestselling author of How to Say Goodbye in Robot and The Boy on the Bridge

"Don't just tell me a mystery; give me a world. Suzanne Myers delivers a hurricane-ravaged island shimmering with atmosphere and dense with secrets. This tight, terrific tale had me turning pages all night long."
--Judy Blundell, National Book Award Winning author of What I Saw and How I Lied
