Reaching Rachel
Summary: Rachel hates her Dad.

He left her.

He left her Mom.

He’s never paid child support.

And three years after the divorce, he's only seen her a handful of times.

When a car accident leaves fifteen-year-old Rachel Ferguson temporarily parentless, she's forced to spend the summer with her estranged father.

Rachel finds herself living in an annoyingly perfect beach home. Dad’s drop-in girlfriend tries too hard. The neighbors—a cheerful girl and her backward brother—have problems of their own. Worst of all, Dad wants to play Happy Family as if nothing ever happened.

Rachel plans to endure her stay, leave, and never look back.

But after alienating everyone around her, she begins to wonder if she’s seeing things clearly.
Everyone has secrets.

Even Rachel.

Reaching Rachel will take you through a young girl’s summer of tragedy, relationships, and finding the truth in surprising places.
