read a novel on surfing that I got to the end of, this being the first However, I felt that there was room for much deeper character development and exploration, as with some of the characters their decisions and actions lacked believability for me I felt that there was too much covered in the way of events, without a definite conclusion That being said, this novel could be setting up to a possible sequel I personally would have loved to seeof Creaky and Luke, as I felt this story arch was set up then forgotten towards the end of the novel, but that could be me and my love of wacky characters Overall, an enjoyable and light read that kept me occupied and reading to the end This is a story I think alot of teenage girls can relate to Set in Australia, it is the story of Ella who
