Half-sisters Cassie and Peck could not be more different. Cassie is a journalist with her feet firmly planted on the ground, and Peck is an actress with her head in the clouds. In fact, the only thing they seem to have in common is their inheritance.

Fool’s House is a broken-down home in the Hamptons left to Cassie and Peck by their Aunt Lydia, a house that she decreed they must share. But Cassie and Peck can’t afford the place, and they can’t agree on what to do with it. Plus, along with the house, they’ve inherited an artist-in-residence and self-proclaimed genius named Biggsy who seems to bring suspiciously bad luck wherever he goes. Cassie and Peck try to figure out their Aunt Lydia’s puzzling instructions to “seek the thing of utmost value” in the house, but as summer comes to a close, they seem no closer to coming to a decision.

The Summer We Read Gatsby is filled with fabulous parties, tempting romances, eccentric characters, and insider society details. It’s a sparkling novel that showcases Danielle Ganek’s pitch-perfect sense of style and wit.

    " Good book. Little higher level than a classic chick-lit book as it was more about two half-sisters trying to learn to like each other. I also really like the Gatsby tie in, makes me want to re-read the book and live a fabulous life in the Hamptons. "

    " I couldn't really get into this book... ended up calling it quits about 50 pages in. Just didn't keep my attention, or grab me in any way, so I decided to move onto the next one on my to-read list. "
