Five best friends go coastal in this fabulously fun surfing series from Roxy Girl!
Luna, Rae, Kanani, Cricket, and Isobel are in for the summer of their lives working at Tuck and Cate's coed surfing camp. But these five girls are more than just counselors -- they're beach girls, best friends, and some of Luna Bay's top surfers.
Lately Luna's been stressing out while preparing for an upcoming surfing competition. She wants to do well, but living up to her mother's reputation as a former U.S. champion surfer isn't so easy. When Cate encourages her daughter to slow down, Luna thinks Cate doesn't believe she's good enough to follow in her footsteps.
At camp, Luna spots a boy who makes her heart rise like a wave. David, a newcomer from the East Coast, likes Luna, too, but there's just one problem -- he hates surfing! Will Luna be able to overcome her own fears and help David learn to love the harsh water? Or will their relationship and Luna's dreams come crashing down?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.
