The Cousins (Paperback)Karen M. McManus (author)
A quartet of siblings face a heart-pounding quest to discover the dark truth about their family in the latest YA murder mystery from the author of One of Us Is Lying.
The Storys are the envy of their neighbours: owners of the largest property on their East Coast island, they are rich, beautiful, and close. Until it all falls apart. The four children are suddenly dropped by their mother with a single sentence:
You know what you did.
They never hear from her again.
Years later, when 18-year-old cousins Aubrey, Milly and Jonah Story receive a mysterious invitation to spend the summer at their grandmother's resort, they have no choice but to follow their curiosity and meet the woman who's been such an enigma their entire lives.
This entire family is built on secrets, right? It's the Story legacy.
This summer, the teenagers are determined to discover the truth at the heart of their family. But some secrets are better left alone.
The brilliant new thriller from international bestselling author of One Of Us Is Lying.
