Surfacing - Book One in the Swans Landing Series

Sixteen-year-old Mara Westray has just lost her mother, and now, being shipped off to live with the father she doesn’t know is not how she imagined grieving. She’s already counting down the days until she turns eighteen and can leave the tiny island of Swans Landing. But from the moment she steps off the ferry, nothing is as ordinary as it looks. Whispers of a haunting song on the wind make her see impossible things, and she isn’t sure she can trust her judgment about what is real and what isn’t anymore. Maybe she can’t even trust her judgment about quiet Josh Canavan, whose way of speaking in riddles and half-truths only confuses her more, luring her deeper into the secrets hidden beneath the ocean’s surface. As she tries to unravel the events that led to her mom fleeing the island sixteen years ago, Mara finds that the biggest secret of all is only the beginning. SURFACING is currently available in ebook format from,, iTunes, Smashwords, and other ebook retailers. Available in audiobook from Audible, and in print at Amazon.

I would stare back and grin as biiiiiiiig as I can and widen my eyes. after a while I might breath deeply like a creep depending if I feel like it. xD
I feel bad for lake he's only like trying to get to know his daughter maybe he had a reason and she really needs to like try to be nice like gosh
She's angry. She's just lost her mum and has been made to live with a man who left them so she's allowed to be angry and stubborn
He deserves everything he gets. He left her and her mum so he can't expect her to easily forgive and forget.
And it makes it worse because he didn't even go to her mums funeral so it makes it look like he doesn't care even more.
It's a small place so she obviously knows she's a new person and is weird and curious. Great story up to now by the way :)
