When Stella imagined her trip to England, she pictured herself as a girl in the pages of a magazine - beach parties with cute boys, surfing off the coast, exploring ancient castles.Instead, she finds herself in a flat with her father's weird girlfriend, Skye, and no one to hang out with but Nicholas, a distant cousin who seems to hate her. Only Richard, Nicholas's dashing father, lives up to Stella's expectations of glamour.Resigning herself to a lonely summer, Stella begins to think more about the mother she lost eight years ago. She has spent her life trying to live up to the ideal of the glamorous woman she knows mostly through photos.What Stella comes to realize, however, about her mother, Richard, Nicholas, Skye, and even herself, is that appearances mean little. For although Richard seems perfect, he is involved in something quite dangerous. And what began as a vacation, turns out to be a soul-searching journey that leaves Stella with a better understanding of herself, her past, and, most importantly, her future.
