Staff Reviews


Twelve-year-old Riddle’s world starts to crumble when she witnesses a terrible crime, but doesn’t report it. Set on Cape Cod in the rarified circles of old money political dynasties, Camperdown’s characters are larger-than-life; brilliant, infuriating, compelling. They have constituencies and causes, servants in their seaside mansions, famous artwork on their walls, and horse habits. Yet they struggle with the shame of overstretched finances, an infamous love triangle, and buried secrets. The Last Summer of the Camperdowns is the perfect summer page-turner.
