"You're on fire," Austin says. 
  
  I turn to him confused."Excuse me?" 
  
  Austin points  and I follow his finger to see my marshmallow on fire, burnt black. I gasp and blow on it but it's already burnt to a crisp. He pulls the marshmallow off his own stick, which is golden brown.
  
  "Here. You can have this one," he says, sighing as he hands over his cooked marshmallow to me. 
  
  I smile and take it. "Thank you."
  
   "Anything for you Princess," he says, winking. 
  
                                                                 ***
  
  Emma Taylor's summer wasn't filled with parties or beaches as she'd hoped for. Instead life slams her into a dark reality that seems to be drowning her. And she doesn't let anyone in to save her, neither her family or her friends. 
          
  But life is full of unexpected twists, bad and good. Emma begins to connect with Austin Moore, her brothers best friend, who just might be able to save her from the cold water's clutches and show her that sometimes you just need to take a leap of faith.
