The day his grandmother dies, seventeen-year-old Billy “Brother” Grace discovers that he has a twin who has recently made headlines by nearly overdosing on drugs. His twin also happens to be the son of a powerful senator. His newly discovered family may not be all that interested in a cheery reunion, but Brother is determined to get answers. When he arrives on the secluded island off the coast of North Carolina where the senator and his family live, sparks will fly, old resentments will be released, and secrets revealed. Part coming-of-age story, part love story, this is a book about finding out that who you are and where you come from aren't necessarily the same thing.

OR THE FIRST NIGHT
in months, Brother dreamed o the sea.
The great mother,
Mem called it. She’d grown up on the coast,said sea dreams ran in the amily. Which explained his dreams,she told him, and why a boy who’d never seen the ocean chaseddolphins in his sleep, heard waves crash shores he never reached,woke shaken and soaked in sweat like something hal-drowned.“I swam with dolphins when I was a girl,” she’d said. “They’regood luck, you know.” He did know. She’d told him many times.But last night’s dream had been the same vain chase. The dol-phin swam ahead o him, just out o reach.He lay still, breathed deep, and let the dream ebb beore open-ing his eyes. His head throbbed, and the glare rom the windowshowed he’d way overslept. The clock said ten. Even at her sick-est, his grandmother rose every day by fve, beore the sun dawnedor the paper thwacked the ront stoop. He’d wake to her fllingthe kettle, hear the scrape and creak o her chair, smell coee
