Sloane isn't expecting to fall in with a group of friends when she moves from New York to Florida—especially not a group of friends so intense, so in love, so all-consuming. Yet that's exactly what happens. Sloane becomes closest to Vera, a social-media star who lights up any room, and Gabe, Vera's twin brother and the most serious person Sloane's ever met. When a beloved painting by the twins' late mother goes missing, Sloane takes on the responsibility of tracking it down, a journey that takes her across state lines—and ever deeper into the twins' lives. Filled with intense and important friendships, a wonderful warts-and-all family, shiveringly good romantic developments, and sharp, witty dialogue, this story is about finding the people you never knew you needed.

I read this at work today (October 9, 2016) and it was a quick read and I really enjoyed it. What I really enjoyed was this: It was a gorgeous day outside and I was working outside, WHERE THIS BOOK IS SET. I always flip out when I've been somewhere a book is set at. This however was set in Panama City, Florida, and I LOVED THAT. She has the native kids to this area's attitudes set right. However, I would recommend that you do not read it right now. Wait until summer. Or you're at the beach like I was. This is a perfect summer contemporary. I feel like I can't explain a lot of what happens without spoiling but read this! The 30A setting is perfect and it's now my favorite setting for a summer contemporary. Just. Do. It.
