Summary
When Claire fears her family might be falling apart, she knows she'll have to fight her own battles - and she plans to win. Always the beauty of the family and often the most ambitious, Claire Sebastian doesn't feel sixteen, and she doesn't dream of romance - she dreams of diamonds. Diamonds and emeralds and anything else that will pay for the best doctors to treat her sister Sybil, now an invalid after a terrible accident. Claire knows that her cheekbones and charm are her best assets, but she'll also need a shrewd strategy if she's going to save her family from their financial troubles. And she's on her own: Her parents, Nicky and Megs, are completely wrapped up in Sybil's recovery, and Claire's sisters just aren't as ruthless as she is. A visit with Aunt Grace and a chance look at an old photograph give Claire the ammunition she needs to pull off her plan. But as it starts to unfold, she realizes that people are going to get hurt... and one of them may be her
