Publisher's Summary

The houses in Pine Estates are beautiful McMansions filled with high-achieving parents, children on the fast track to top colleges, all of the comforts of modern living, and the best security systems money can buy. Welcome to normal upper-middle-class suburbia.

The Turners know in their hearts that they're anything but normal. Jenna is a high schooler dressed in black who is fascinated with breaking into her neighbors' homes, security systems be damned. Everett genuinely believes he loves his wife...he just loves having a continuing stream of mistresses more. JT is a genius kid with Asperger's who moves from one obsession to the next. And Kate tries to manage her family, manage her mother (who lives down the street), and avoid wondering why her life is passing her by.

And now everything is changing for them. Jenna suddenly finds herself in a boy-next-door romance she never could have predicted. Everett's secrets are beginning to unravel on him. JT is getting his first taste of success at navigating the world. And Kate is facing truths about her husband, her mother, and her father that she might have preferred not to face.

Loved this book!

This was a terrific book, three different narratives from mother father and daughter and their interactions on what turns out to be a very interesting woven pattern. Their lives all interact in some great storylines and its just like being a fly on the wall. I loved the wife 'kate' her narrator was so soft and it really did feel like we were in side her brain and hearing all her decisions and thought processes (right and wrong). The characters were very true to life and realistically flawed which l really loved. I Am so bored of books with perfect 'cant do a thing wrong no flaws at all' characters. This was a refreshing read.
