9781595142740: Taken by Storm

Leesie Hunt has many rules: No kissing. No sex. No dating outside the Mormon faith.

When Michael Walden - a deep-sea diver who lost his parents in a violent hurricane - arrives in town, Leesie sees someone who needs her. They fall for one another, even though his dreams are tied to the depths of the ocean and hers to salvation above.

Will their intense chemistry be too strong to resist?

Leesie and Michael must make the hardest choice of their lives: whether to follow their beliefs or their hearts.

Readers will be swept away by this tale of forbidden romance told in online chats, Leesie's chapbook poems, and Michael's dive log. It's as steamy as Twilight and just as clean.

About the Author:

Angela Morrison grew up on a pig farm in Tekoa, Washington, which she used for Taken by Storm's setting. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA in English and received her MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College. She currently lives with her husband and four children in the Sonoran deserts of Scottsdale, Arizona, after living for eleven years in Canada, Switzerland, and Singapore.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 10 Up—Leesie is a beautiful, straight-laced Mormon desperate to escape high school and the boys who torment her there. Michael is a scuba diver whose parents were killed on a dive trip. He desperately longs to dive again, but terrifying flashbacks of the hurricane that killed his friends and family plague him. Leesie is drawn to Michael's brokenness—she feels she can save him. He is attracted to her purity and beauty. Soon, all the rules Leesie has found easy to obey in the past (no hot-and-heavy kissing, no dating an unbeliever, no sex) are no longer cut-and-dry, and her plan to attend BYU no longer seems so important. Both Michael and Leesie must figure out what matters most to them. This book explores the teens' relationship through poetry, instant messages, and journal entries. Although the format is clever, the author doesn't fully commit to sharing this story in the characters' own words. Leesie's poetry is full of emotion and does a great job of expressing her feelings, but Michael's journal entries are unconvincing as the writings of a grief-stricken teen. Also, he is selfish and disrespectful of Leesie's beliefs, and she is too willing to forgive him when he has sex with a classmate. Their relationship is uncomfortably codependent, and when the teens split up at the end, it is a relief.—Heather M. Campbell, formerly at Philip S. Miller Library, Castle Rock, CO END
