Synopsis

Blue by Lisa Glass

Surfing is sixteen-year-old Iris's world, and when the ultra-talented Zeke walks into her life, it soon becomes her passion. Over one amazing summer, as she is drawn into his sphere, she experiences love, new friendships, but also loss, with an intensity she never dreamed of. But is Zeke all he seems? What hides beneath his glamorous and mysterious past? When Iris decides to try for her own surfing success, just as her ex-boyfriend comes back into her life, she will test her talent, and her feelings for Zeke, to the limit...

Reviews

'Possibly the best YA Romance by a UK author I've read'

... the characters, their dialect and motivations, feel very real. It addresses sexism in surfing as a minor theme effectively ... Tribalism, jealousy and loyalty are explored in lots of ways and I read the whole thing in one go School Librarian
