Description
For more than a century, the small town of Haddan, Massachusetts, has been divided. It was as if a line were drawn down the center of Main Street, separating those born and bred in the village from those who attend the prestigious Haddan School. Then an inexplicable death thrusts the two worlds together, and, as the lives of everyone involved unravel, the town's divided history is revealed.

The students at the prestigious prep school don't mix with locals; even within the school, hierarchy rules as freshman and faculty members find out where they fit in and what is expected from them. But there are minor collisions happening everywhere: An awkward boy, the son of a teacher, is flirting with a pretty classmate, the daughter of a convenience-store cashier. A photographer in plastic flip-flops and an overflowing backpack is about to marry a staid, ambitious historian.
