August Isle

By: Ali Standish

Miranda wants nothing more than to spend the summer with her mother, repairing whatever has mysteriously broken between them. So she is crushed when her parents send her to stay with family friends in August Isle, a little coastal town where Miranda’s mother spent her summers growing up. Things start looking up when Miranda becomes fast friends with “Aunt” Clare’s daughter, Sammy, who is sure this will be the best summer ever, spent sailing in the bay and licking ice cream cones underneath the majestic August Oak. But everything changes when a dare gone wrong results in the girls spending their afternoons with Caleb, a mischievous boy from Sammy’s school, and Mr. Taylor, an old seafarer. Suddenly, mysteries begin to swirl around Miranda and August Isle: Mr. Taylor is a man of many stories, but why won’t he share his own? And what are the strange sounds Miranda hears at night, coming from the haunted lighthouse? When a set of clues leads Miranda to a family secret, she is faced with the biggest question of all: Is she brave enough to face the truth?
