Riptide by Lindsey Scheibe

Scheibe paints an excellent picture of the surfing world. You can close your eyes and imagine yourself at the beach with her descriptive writing techniques. The sweet story of two best friends in a world of sand and surf; who face their own obstacles, will have readers rooting for their success.

From Goodreads

For Grace Parker, surfing is all about the ride and the moment. Everything else disappears. She can forget that her best friend, Ford Watson, has a crush on her that she can’t reciprocate. She can forget how badly she wants to get a surf scholarship to UC San Diego. She can forget the pressure of her parents’ impossibly high expectations.

When Ford enters Grace into a surf competition—the only way she can impress the UCSD surfing scouts—she has one summer to train and prepare. Will she gain everything she’s ever wanted or lose the only things that ever mattered?
