Nothing ever came between sisters Alice and Charlie.
Friends didn't.
Boys couldn't.
Their family falling apart never would.
Until they got to Serenity Point.
"The Innocents" is the first in a new series of young adult novels that weave a saga of nail-biting drama, breathless romance, and gothic mystery.

Thank you to Penguin and Razorbill for this ARC.

If you enjoy Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl or 90210, then this is the book for you. If not?  Well, you might want to pass on it.

This book was a mix for me... On one hand, it's well written with twists and turns that keep it from being boring but it also felt "wordy" and cliche at times.  The beginning is slow and it wasn't until roughly 3/4 of way through before I became engaged and then... it ended.  (Wait. What? That's it?)

There is a mess of would-be love triangles (adults not excluded) and it was hard to tell whose intentions were real and whose weren't.
