Summary from B&N.com:
When high school junior Melissa Keiser returns to her hometown of Anna Maria Island, Florida, she has one goal: hide from the bullies who had convinced her she was the ugliest girl in school. But when she is caught sneaking into a neighbor's pool at night, everything changes. Something is different now that Melissa is sixteen, and the guys and popular girls who once made her life miserable have taken notice. When Melissa gets the chance to escape life in a house ruled by her mom's latest boyfriend, she must choose where her loyalties lie between a long-time crush, a new friend, and her surfer brother who makes it impossible to forget her roots. Just as Melissa seems to achieve everything she ever wanted, she loses a loved one to suicide. Melissa must not only grieve for her loss, she must find the truth about the three boys who loved her and discover that joy sometimes comes from the most unexpected place of all.
Like Moonlight At Low Tide is heart breaking and breathe taking. The story line is gripping, and it pulls you into the story. The characters were so realistic. Nicole Quigley did an incredible job writing this book.
This book is very hypnotic. I could not put it down. The storyline is really enjoyable, but meaningful at the same time. Even though this book has it's sad part that you you cry. it has those parts that make you smile or laugh. It is realistic fiction at it's best. This book felt like real life not a book.
Melissa was such an easy character to connect to. She and the other character were so enjoyable to read about. The meaningfulness in each and almost all of the characters made this book even more mind-blowing. Each and everyone of the characters in this book felt like they were real.
Nicole Quigley blow me away with her debut novel. I hope to be able to read more books by her in the future. She put me into this realistic world, where it was like I was Melissa. While I was reading I was living Melissa's crazy life not, it did not feel like I was reading. This is a realistic fiction that you don't want to miss.
I loved this book! It was realistic. The writing was great. Nicole Quigley took my breathe away with this novel. I recommend this to people who like YA realistic fiction or Ya contemporary books.
