Cover Reveal: Riptide by Lindsey Scheibe
May 8th, 2013 from Flux
17-year-old Grace is fully aware her best friend Ford has a crush on her, but she refuses to acknowledge it. Surfing with him is the only time she forgets about her abusive father, stifling mother, and the pressure to be impossibly perfect. She's not willing to risk their lifelong friendship to find out if it could be something more.
No matter how tempting it may be.
All Grace wants is to graduate, get out of the house, and make the UC San Diego surf team. The problem? She's never had the guts to sign up for a competition, the only way she'll ever get noticed by the UC scouts. Until that is, Ford does it for her.
Now she has one summer to train. One summer to prove she's good enough-- to the scouts, to her parents, and most of all, to herself. As the training grows more intense, the violence at home escalates, and the romance reaches a point of no return.
Grace is about to gain everything she's ever wanted... or lose the only things that have ever mattered.
I am super excited about a new summer read - yes, I know it is six months away! Last summer I found some amazing contemporaries that have still stuck with me so I'm looking forward to adding to the list. This book makes me miss living by the ocean so much! I literally long to feel the sand and hear the tide roll in. Le sigh... Be sure to add this to your TBF pile!
