(From the publisher):
At first Lariena is glad she has to spend the summer with her foot in a cast. It means she has a built-in excuse to stay out of the water at the beach. It's not the water that bothers her, but what might be below the surface. But then she meets Adrian. Lariena won't go in the water, and she can't understand why Adrian won't come out. Eventually Adrian teaches Lariena to face her fears and not be afraid of what's Beneath The Surface, even when it's the scary unknown.
