Summary
Meredith Hall has a secret. Every night, she takes the ferry to meet Ben--her best friend and first love, who she has a second chance with. Until Wyatt washes ashore--a brash new guy with a Texas twang and a personality bigger than his home state. He makes Mer feel reckless, excited, and alive in ways that cut through her perpetual gloom. Slowly, they form a cautious friendship.But a storm is brewing in the Outer Banks. When it hits, Mer will find her heart tearing in half and her carefully constructed reality slipping back into the surf. She'll soon discover that even the most deeply buried secrets have a way of surfacing, and as they do, she'll have to come to grips with the fact that nothing is forever--especially second chances.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Meredith Hall sneaks out almost every night to meet her boyfriend, Ben, on the deserted beach of a tiny island off the North Carolina coast. After she learned she was pregnant with Ben's baby, Mer had an abortion without involving Ben, a decision that led him to break up with her but he forgave her, and they're finding their way back to a healthier (but secret) relationship. The reader will quickly figure out we've got an unreliable narrator, so torn up over recent losses in her life that she has created an alternative world. When she meets new boy Wyatt, Mer starts to feel awake again, but his presence may unsettle her entire world. On the surface, this is a unique love triangle with a confused girl in the middle. The unusual setting (isolated island communities, schools so small the junior class consists of 11 students) and presence of star teen athletes who step away from their sports may intrigue readers, but the primary readership will be those who swoon over a doomed romance.--Debbie Carton Copyright 2019 Booklist"
