Teaser Tuesday Pieces of Us by Margie Gelbwasser

No one can talk about anything except the "rumors", but Chloe and I know they're not rumors. In History we talk about being innocent until proven guilty. Our teacher throws up her hands. "Forget this. Who thinks he did it?" We look at each other and raise our hands. She does too.

This weeks teaser comes from page 236 of the ARC so it may be different in the edited edition.

Summary from Goodreads:
Two families. Four teens. 
A summer full of secrets. 

Every summer, hidden away in a lakeside community in upstate New York, four teens leave behind their old identities…and escape from their everyday lives. 

Yet back in Philadelphia during the school year, Alex cannot suppress his anger at his father (who killed himself), his mother (whom he blames for it), and the girls who give it up too easily. His younger brother, Kyle, is angry too—at his abusive brother, and at their mother who doesn’t seem to care. Meanwhile, in suburban New Jersey, Katie plays the role of Miss Perfect while trying to forget the nightmare that changed her life. But Julie, her younger sister, sees Katie only as everything she’s not. And their mother will never let Julie forget it. 

Up at the lake, they can be anything, anyone. Free. But then Katie’s secret gets out, forcing each of them to face reality—before it tears them to pieces.
