Medina Mason is a defiant, awkward newcomer to the affluent beach community of Palos Verdes, California. As her parents' marriage disintegrates and her beloved brother falls prey to the temptations of drugs and the lunacy of their mother, Medina surfs to survive, finding a bitter solace in the rough comfort of the waves. This is the moving story of growing up "different," of the love between siblings, and of one girl's power to save herself.

10 seconds, and no touching XD She makes sure of it. I quite think it worked well haha. Nothing they wouldn't see on the Internet anyway, and it was a real nice board too!

Yeah I can see, I'm happy with that! Making me want to listen more. I've got a 2hr break tomorrow between class, so when I'm not at the gym I will read more Skylarks and listen to this. When I'm at home it's basically just uni uni uni until I get finished with this week's stuff, and then I might sprint some.

Finished.

Review: Is it possible to give a book 0 stars? I honestly wish I had never read this stupid book. It was such a time-waster, all of the characters were so freaking dumb and I hated all of them, every single one. Not any of them had any redeeming qualities. I didn't get inside the heads of any of the characters, I feel like their feelings weren't described, only the outside of them. Or if they were I just couldn't relate because the story was just so crazy. I can't understand why (view spoiler) Something else that was never explained was (view spoiler) Also (view spoiler) And the casual use of hard drugs in this book in insane. I just hated everything about it. Never read this.

Going there and doing drugs doesn’t give an excuse for that to happen! No way!

Haha everything you hated was everything I loved. It delved into some real topics that aren’t all explored necessarily, well in such an organic way.
