If he could be her tragedy, I could be a better one.
As a newcomer on Ophelia Island, Florida, Sam Carter is distraught about moving away from his life in West Virginia. But the moment he lays eyes on the mysterious diner girl, Georgia Gabehart, he can’t help but surrender to her bewitching allure.
Sam is mesmerized by Georgia even as she steals sailboats at night and breaks into lighthouses-the master of playing with knives and not getting cut. Until she’s trapped in the tight grip of her boyfriend with a dark side.
When a dangerous hurricane sweeps Sam into a police investigation and Georgia is nowhere to be found, Sam gives himself only one option: love, even if loving might end in tragedy.
This dazzling coming of age debut novel from award-winning fiction writer M.M. Cochran will take your breath away.

Moving is never easy and it’s particularly difficult during the teens years. Sam has to leave all he knows in West Virginia and finds himself in some podunk town in Florida and thinks all is lost until he spies Georgia.
But will Georgia bring him what he is seeking or will she take him places he really does not want to go? At this point in his life Sam does not care. All he is looking for is something in his life to make some sense even if that something makes no sense at all.
This is a YA book and yet I was not bored. Nor did I feel as if I was reading a teen angst type of book. It kept me intrigued and turning the pages until the end. It’s not your typical romancy type of book and sometimes that is just what you need even though you don’t realize it.
This is a good, thought provoking book.
