Description

For Grace Parker, surfing is all about the ride and the moment. When she drops into a perfect wave, Grace can forget that her best friend, Ford Watson, has a crush on her that she can’t reciprocate, no matter how tempting. She can forget the trouble she faces at home, where her parents pressure her to be impossibly perfect. She can forget how badly she wants a surf scholarship to UC San Diego.

Signing up for her first surf competition, Grace has just one summer to train and impress the university scouts who will be judging the comp. But summer is about more than just big waves. As romances ignite and her feelings for Ford threaten to reach the point of no return, Grace must face the biggest challenges of her life.

This summer, everything changes.

Praise:“A compelling and atmospheric story of love and friendship—two young people try to catch the perfect wave? and figure out where they belong.”—Cynthia Leitich Smith, New York Times bestselling author of Eternal

"This debut about a surfer girl delves into hidden child abuse and scores with strong characterizations."—KIRKUS REVIEWS

"Scheibe's story is rich with details, real-life problems, and characters you want to hang out with. You will feel its pull."—Jennifer Ziegler, author of How Not to be Popular
