" Kidd is running from his past and his future. No mom, no dad, and there s nothing for him at the group home but therapy. He doesn t belong at the beach where he works either, unless he finds a reason to stay.
Olivia is blond hair, blue eyes, rich dad. The prettiest girl in Cardiff. She s hiding something from Kidd but could they ever be together anyway?
Devon is mean, mysterious, and driven by a death wish. A best friend and worst enemy. He followed Kidd all the way to the beach and he s not leaving until he teaches him a few lessons about life. And Olivia.
"A taut psychological novel...[with] intriguing, well-developed characters...[that] will stay with readers."-"Booklist"
