It was the perfect summer of first kisses, skinny- dipping, and bonfires by the lake. Joy, Tali, Luce, and Zoe knew their final summer at Camp Okahatchee would come to an end, but they swore they'd stay friends.


Now, two years later, their bond has faded, along with those memories.


That is, until the fateful flash of a photo-booth camera transports the four of them back in time, to the summer they were fifteen—the summer everything changed.


The girls must re-create the past in order to return to the present. As they live through their second-chance summer, the mystery behind their lost friendship unravels, and a dark secret threatens to tear the girls apart all over again.


Summers end. But this one will change them forever.
