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.

"You're on fire," Austin says. 
    
I turn to him, confused."Excuse me?" 
    
Austin points and I follow his finger to see the marshmallow at the end of my stick on fire. 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, Emmie," he says, winking.

Why did the guys name have to be Austin Moore? I used to get bullied by an Austin Moore. He and his friends made almost everyone at the school I went to hate me.
