I Know What You Did Last Summer meets The Haunting of Hill House in this atmospheric, eerie teen thriller following an estranged group of friends being haunted by their friend who died last summer.
Emily Joiner was once part of an inseparable group—she was a sister, a best friend, a lover, and a rival. Summers without Emily were unthinkable. Until the fire burned the lake house to ashes with her inside.
A year later, it’s in Emily’s honor that Chelsea and her four friends decide to return. The house awaits them, meticulously rebuilt. Only, Chelsea is haunted by ghostly visions. Loner Ryan stirs up old hurts and forces golden boy Chase to play peacemaker. Which has perfect hostess Kennedy on edge as eerie events culminate in a stunning accusation: Emily’s death wasn’t an accident. And all the clues needed to find the person responsible are right here.
As old betrayals rise to the surface, Chelsea and her friends have one night to unravel a mystery spanning three summers before a killer among them exacts their revenge.

What would Chelsea’s favorite book be and why?

Possibly Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen. Chelsea would say that you can befriend a book, and that book would be a friend. 

Who are some authors who inspire you?

Stephen King, Shirley Jackson, all of my friends who write, published and unpublished. 

What’s your current favorite book?

I’m Thinking of Ending Things by Iain Reid

What TV shows or movies would pair well with Summer’s Edge?

I Know What You Did Last Summer (movie and series) and The Haunting of Hill House + Bly Manor (series)

If you had to collaborate with one author, who would it be and why?

Possibly Derek Milman because I think his writing is brilliant and his voice is unmatched. 

What’s the first line on page 103?

“But I do.”
