    I literally could not put this book down The characters tore at and captured my heart and I felt so attached to them.Travis, injured by a shark attack while surfing lost an arm and struggled to make a comeback emotionally He wallowed in self pity and was a bitter and broken man His bother Devin who was his idol was far from the role model of an older brother While Travis was recovering both emotionally and physically, Devin was not there for him and he had his own demons to contend with Alc I literally could not put this book down The characters tore at and captured my heart and I felt so attached to them.Travis, injured by a shark attack while surfing lost an arm and struggled to make a comeback emotionally He wallowed in self pity and was a bitter and broken man His bother Devin who was his idol was far from the role model of an older brother While Travis was recovering both emotionally and physically, Devin was not there for him and he had his own demons to contend with Alcohol and substance abuse plagued his life and his guilt not being there for Travis only fueled his addiction Thrown into the mix was their father, Carl who did all he could as a single father who had lost his beloved wife to cancer.Both boys seemed to have bad luck thrown their way and could not face the fact that there was a problem Deep down they knew , but seemed to mask everything with denial, alcohol and drugs.Poor Carl, stuck in the middle was at his wit s end with his boys He loved them with everything he had, yet it wasn t enough it seemed to help them overcome their bad habits He was helpless.Travis, with only one arm longed to get back in the water and back on his board but was dead ass afraid Afraid of failing afraid to admit that is what he wanted, afraid to let anyone into his life Only through a co worker, Shayla did he muster the courage to get back up and face his fears Shayla and Travis had an immediate attraction, but Travis was too hard headed to realize what a great girl she was and just how much he needed her in his messed up life She was the only thing that would bring him back to the old Travis.Devin was the ultimate screw up in the family His constant need for cocaine nearly destroyed the family Guilt ridden that Travis had lost his arm, he just couldn t be the older brother he knew he needed to be.Each son was wrapped up in their own emotional turmoil and their father bore the brunt of all this Unconditional love was all Carl could give, even at the expense of being physically abused by Devin while he was high.This book is a good lesson in life, confronting your demons, and getting back up again after being knocked down.Life throws curve balls your way and this book shows how people can overcome adversities with the help of family and friends People CAN recover and become renewed Broken hearts can be mended life does go on This is a must read and you ll come away a better person after reading this book I only hope Cheryl writes a sequel, because the story of Travis, Shayla, Devin and Carl is NOT over

    Having lived on the Cornish coast, I have a few friends who are surf fanatics, so I was intrigued to find outabout this subculture And I m immediately put in mind the film 4th July, but in a surfing context retired vets, trying to fill the gap that was once their life.And what follows is great This is a very human, gritty tale While it begins with a surfing scene, you do a good job of describing the surfing in a simple way so that an average non surfing reader could understand it.I Having lived on the Cornish coast, I have a few friends who are surf fanatics, so I was intrigued to find outabout this subculture And I m immediately put in mind the film 4th July, but in a surfing context retired vets, trying to fill the gap that was once their life.And what follows is great This is a very human, gritty tale While it begins with a surfing scene, you do a good job of describing the surfing in a simple way so that an average non surfing reader could understand it.I don t know much about surfing but I was hooked right from your terrifying opening.Travis is a great character, a wounded hero really, fighting to find some kind of normality after his accident You portray him brilliantly and I feel for his plight What a thing to have to deal with, I couldn t image how I d cope And you succinctly sum it up at the end of Ch3 when the Hawaiian girl reacts by turning a bright shade of red Oooh, poor guy All your characters are well observed and beautifully crafted Very real, fractured human beings.I loved the read thank you

    This is for the surfers Appreciate the struggle with rehabilitation Surfing narrative is real, been there that s its saving grace It will have a place with the surfing fraternity Especially strong when you describe the pain after the amputation and the frustration too I know a guy who lost his leg in a bike accident, and this is almost word for word how he was afterwards You succeeded in getting me to care about your characters As a father, I really identified with Carl as he nurtured Tr This is for the surfers Appreciate the struggle with rehabilitation Surfing narrative is real, been there that s its saving grace It will have a place with the surfing fraternity Especially strong when you describe the pain after the amputation and the frustration too I know a guy who lost his leg in a bike accident, and this is almost word for word how he was afterwards You succeeded in getting me to care about your characters As a father, I really identified with Carl as he nurtured Travis and repeatedly kicked Devin in the rump for being an irresponsible punk I could picture Lea, a pretty young woman, perhaps a bit worn out, aged past her years because of Devin To that end, I could stand seeing Travis fleshed out a bit , especially about his experiences in Canada Just a thought Great stuff and best of luck with it

    This book was well written and knowledgeable about surfing on the North Shore Loved seeing the story from different points of view without getting confusing as other books tend to do A little romance, mixed with the emotional conflict of having to suffer through a not so ordinary ordeal No cliche ending Perfect in my books pun intended.
