About the book:
When high school junior Melissa Keiser returns to her hometown of Anna Maria Island, Florida, she has one goal: hide from the bullies who had convinced her she was the ugliest girl in school. But when she is caught sneaking into a neighbor's pool at night, everything changes. Something is different now that Melissa is sixteen, and the guys and popular girls who once made her life miserable have taken notice. When Melissa gets the chance to escape life in a house ruled by her mom's latest boyfriend, she must choose where her loyalties lie between a long-time crush, a new friend, and her surfer brother who makes it impossible to forget her roots. Just as Melissa seems to achieve everything she ever wanted, she loses a loved one to suicide. Melissa must not only grieve for her loss, she must find the truth about the three boys who loved her and discover that joy sometimes comes from the most unexpected place of all.

My thoughts:


Like Moonlight At Low Tide was a wonderful book. The beginning of the story was good and grabbed my attention (read a sample and you'll see what I mean), but it wasn't until I was well into the book that I started to love the story and really care about the characters.

I had no idea what was going to happen to the characters or how the book was going to end-- and when I reached those last couple chapters I got really nervous that something I dreaded was going to happen. But, the book ended the way it should and I loved it.

Overall, a very good read. I'm not usually a fan of coming-of-age novels, but I loved Like Moonlight At Low Tide. I recommend it to older teens and adults who like realistic YA fiction.
