The Rest of the Story

Emma Saylor Payne has always been Emma to her dad’s side of the  family. Her mom called her Saylor, but her mom, an addict who’d been in and out of  rehab, has been dead for five years now and was divorced from Emma’s father five years before that. But then a twist of  fate leads Emma to spend the  summer at her mom’s childhood home North Lake. At North Lake, Emma—though everyone here knows her as Saylor—reconnects with the  family she hardly knows and learns about the  mother she can barely remember and the  place where her parents met, which is divided sharply into two worlds: the  wealthy vacation spot her father visited and her mother’s working-class community. And she begins to realize that she’s not the  girl she—or her father—has always thought she was.
