The Lifeguard

It's a turbulent summer for Sirena Shane. Back in Texas, her family's splitting apart, but at her aunt's beach cottage in Rhode Island, everything is different. Especially with him around. Pilot. He's the lifeguard with extraordinary looks and mystical powers, who's unlike any boy she's ever known. He's the one who both saves her and makes her feel lost at sea. So begins an unforgettable summer of obsession and discovery.

The Lifeguard saves lives, but maybe not in just the traditional sense of the word. Pilot is the local lifeguard in Rhode Island where Sirena lands for the summer, after running from turbulence back home. Sirena is a budding artist and at the beach she finds both a mentor and a man she loves to look at. The later being Pilot. 
Some of the things that traveled with Sirena in her mind she just can't shake and she finds herself in some situations that require rescuing. Sometimes your rescued by the sturdy lifeguard, sometimes you rescued by a not so typical character. There are also hundreds of ways someone can rescue another. 
I really loved this book and couldn't put it down for a moment. The relationships, interactions, secrets and blossuming young love all drew me in. Whith well established characters and some shocking moments this was a five star book all the way!



  1. You know, I read this book and I did not care for it. I just thought the ideas were way too jumbled and there was a lot going on from a paranormal standpoint. I appreciate seeing a different viewpoint, though - thanks!
