Publisher Comments:

Brady loves life on the Chesapeake Bay with his friends J.T. and Digger. But developers and rich families are moving into the area, and while Brady befriends some of them, like the DiAngelos, his parents and friends are bitter about the changes. Tragedy strikes when the DiAngelos’ kayak overturns in the bay, and Brady wonders if it was more than an accident. Soon, Brady discovers the terrible truth behind the kayak’s sinking, and it will change the lives of those he loves forever. Priscilla Cummings deftly weaves a suspenseful tale of three teenagers caught in a wicked web of deception.

Synopsis:

First hailed as a hero for his dramatic water rescue of a little boy, thirteen-year-old Brady Parks soon makes a discovery that puts him at the heart of an enormous tragedy. Alone with his dark secret, Brady is ultimately forced to choose between loyalty to his lifelong friends and doing what he knows in his heart is right. Priscilla Cummings weaves a suspenseful, multilayered tale of three teenage boys caught in a wicked web of their own making.

I enjoyed this book greatly. It was beautifully written and it was extremely suspenseful. The character Brady really expresses his emotions throughout the story. His relationship with the characters he interacts with are complex. He wants to keep his parents happy but at the same time wants to get the guilty conscience off of his chest. When he received the picture of Amanda for his wallet, and he was saying how he never saw a picture of her, I actually cried. I almost cried when he put back the Lego Aquanauts that he had set out for Ben when Ben got home from the hospital. I loved the book, and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a little heart-ripping,suspenseful book. the only thing I did not like was how it ended. It didn't give you much detail about what happened to the characters, "Digger" and "JT" (thats why I rated it a four-star).
