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.

Customer Reviews For "Like Moonlight At Low Tide"Write Your Own Review
As I was reading, I was trying to decide whether or not Like Moonlight at Low Tide was actually Christian fiction. Missy wasn't a Christian, her mother certainly wasn't, and it didn't seem that any of her friends were either. It wasn't until quite late in the book that the Christian element started to come through, but it was worth waiting for. "When I was seventeen, the only boy who ever called me by my full name took his own life. It was the first time I ever saw a mistake that couldn't be undone." Yes, this novel is different. It's written in the first person, and Missy is a complex character growing up in a difficult environment. It's gritty and real, yet with a bittersweet aftertaste, as though things shouldn't be like this. Like Moonlight at Low Tide is the debut novel from Nicole Quigley, and shows she is a voice to watch in Christian fiction for her edgy realism. Recommended.
