Late Summer Monarch
Late Summer Monarch
Late Summer Monarch
Some small town secrets need to be told . . .Stealing the family car is not 14-year-old Darby Fletcher’s brightest idea—even if helping best friend Keaton is the motive. When the plan backfires, Darby’s life collides with Crazy Rainey Shaw and her sidekick, a parrot named Hallelujah. The sentence: community service hours helping the heiress transform the old Shaw mansion into a bed & breakfast. During renovation, Darby discovers an unpopular classmate hiding in the attic. Confronted with feelings she’d rather ignore, Darby is torn between Keaton’s quest for popularity and helping Peyton—loner, thief, and outcast. Like Crazy Rainey’s stories of the late summer monarch, Peyton cannot soar without finding shelter. Will Darby befriend Peyton despite the cost?
