Description

Sixteen year-old Anna Dugan is a super surfer who feels most at home when taking off on a ten-foot wave. But surf culture bores Anna big time. While other surfers follow trends and speak the lingo, Anna harbors a secret desire to be an artist, drawing houses made of waves. It's not the most practical dream for the shy daughter of a single mom living in Kendall's Watch, a beach town where most kids are so surf-centric they think 'Current Events' have something to do with ocean tides. It is shaping up to be the worst summer ever, and Anna is in full-fledged panic mode as she hides out from a surf scout, a YouTube video gone viral, and a serial-dating mom. But Secretspot, her secluded surf retreat, becomes treacherous in ways Anna never could have imagined, and the danger has nothing to do with waves. When a gorgeous stranger paddles out, smiling a bewitching smile and surfing like a god, their chemistry is impossible to ignore. A series of events are set in motion that will change Anna's life forever; events that raise difficult questions about love, honesty, betrayal, and family ties. Dive in to Wavehouse--life-preserver recommended--and the decision is yours.

Author Biography

The daughter of a Merchant Marine and a Rockaway beach babe, Alice Kaltman's life has always been ocean-centric. Now when she's not in the water she writes about surfers, mermaids, and other odd balls. In addition to Wavehouse, Alice is the author of the short fiction collection Staggerwing. Alice's work can also be read in numerous journals, magazines and fiction anthologies. She splits her time between Brooklyn and Montauk, New York where she swims, surfs and writes; weather and waves permitting.
