Daisy Walker is tired of her goodie two-shoes image and she's ready to break loose. Her new boyfriend Peter has really opened her eyes and convinced her to be more daring. The only problem is that her sisters--Rose, Laurel, and Lily--want the old Daisy back.
Laurel thought that nothing could go wrong -- until her older sister Daisy died. Without Daisy, the family was falling apart -- and Laurel needed somewhere to turn. Luckily, there was Jack.
Lily has always felt that she doesnt measure up to her three older sisters, Rose, Daisy, and Laurel. Each has a special talent, except Lily. But lately, Lily has discovered a way to make people--even the boy she likes--notice her. Can anything be more difficult than being herself?
Meet the Walker sisters, Rose, Daisy, Laurel, and Lily--each girl different in personality, temperament, and talents. This first story focuses on oldest sister Rose and follows her tragedies and triumphs, even her first love, in the year following her sixteenth birthday.
Things heat up on the shores of Silver Beach... Ethan Wells falls in love with Laura McIver, a beautiful, strong-minded girl who'll keep him out of Charlotte's clutches forever... or so he thinks. Elli Wells finally opens her heart to Sam DeWitt... until she unearths the shock of a lifetime. Charlotte Ransom, betrayed by Ethan, vows she'll sooner see Laura McIver dead than let her win Ethan's heart... and she means it. Sam DeWitt, desperate to keep Elli's love, hides a secret that could tear them apart.
Who's spending the summer at the private Silver Beach? Elli Wells denies her own longings to protect her younger brother from Charlotte Ransom, the girl she knows will break Ethan's heart. Ethan Wells sets his sights on the one thing he's wanted all his life: Charlotte Ransom. Charlotte Ransom is jealous of everything Elli has. And the thing she craves most can never be hers: Sam DeWitt. Sam DeWitt could have anyone at Silver Beach... except the one girl who holds his heart: Elli Wells.
Turning sixteen is an unforgettable milestone, and each of these four sisters has her own story to tell. Rose, the oldest, feels like she has the most responsibility when her father dies, and yearns to be true to herself. Daisy wants to break free from her family, but trouble arises when she falls for a bad boy. Laurel struggles with the loss of a close relative and finds herself drawn to a boy who may actually understand. And Lily, the youngest sister, feels like nothing could be more difficult than actually being herself. These four books in one special bind-up make for a great value--and an even better read.
