'With all due respect, sir... No one knows anything about anyone's life.'
Rain Douglass has spent years struggling to fit into the surf-obsessed town of Mooney River. Angsty and secretive, Rain doesn't go to parties, hook up, or share every detail of her life on social media like other kids at school.
Erik Everson, Mooney River's 'Golden Boy', is the privileged son of a surfing legend - but no one knows his life is falling apart. His twin sister Eleanor, a determined perfectionist, is fighting for control in a world she barely understands. Michael Thatcher, the twins' messy and loud-mouthed best friend, is just trying to pass year eleven.
When Rain is forced to work with this tight-knit trio to protect her town from a megacorporation threatening their local environment, she is drawn into chaos, unexpected friendship, and sudden, intoxicating love. But will she be brave enough to hold on to it?
