Five best friends go coastal in this fabulously
Isobel can't believe her good luck. First, she meets the boy of her dreams. Roger is smart, charming, and drop-dead gorgeous, plus he's fluent in Spanish and a surf fanatic just like she is. Then Isobel catches the attention of a major surf company in the process -- enough to make it want to sponsor her!
But Isobel's wave of excitement quickly turns to mush when she learns that Roger works for the same company. She questions whether she got the sponsorship based on her own merit or if her new boyfriend pulled some strings without telling her. Soon her beach companions are wondering the same thing. Can Isobel find a way to prove her stuff in the big surf? Or will her tide of fortune turn against her?
It's all about a passion for the sport . . . and life.

Francess Lantz's beautifully rendered, compassionate portrait of a complex father-daughter relationship pays tribute to the ability of love to transcend boundaries of life and death. FRANCESS LANTZ is the author of SOMEONE TO LOVE and several other books for young people. A graduate of Dickinson College, she has worked as a children's librarian, a rock-and roll musician, and a book reviewer. She writes: "Although FADE FAR AWAY is a fictional story, I know how it feels to lose a father and to feel on the outside, powerless to help. My father, an architect, died when I was fifteen. I often wished he'd had a chance to spend time alone with him during his illness. Instead, I've given my main character, Sienna, that chance." Francess Lantz lives with her husband and young son in Santa Barbara, California.
