I love this series!! I teach seventh grade and the books are perfect for my students!

Between the sun, surf, and romance, MAKING WAVES is my personal favorite. It's also the most requested book in my library this spring.

Don't miss this gem!

I liked the basic storyline of this book, but there were WAY to many characters introduced which caused it to be confusing. It was also predictable.

This was another awesome book about a girl getting a job as a Southern California beach lifeguard. And possibly getting a chance to hang out with her crush-another lifeguard.
