Abby desperately wants to win the annual lifeguarding competition, and with it a college scholarship. But when she arrives for her first day on the job, she finds herself face-to-face with some serious club member attitude. And there's an even bigger surprise waiting for her: the gorge senior boy she's been pining over ever since they met at a swimming competition earlier this year.
Can Abby break through the rules, regs, and mean girls to be the first-ever non-club member to win the summertime lifeguarding competition and maybe even the boy of her dreams?
It was really fun to get to know Abby in this one. I just love the characters in this series, and in Making Waves, quite a few new characters pop up. All the characters always have such a great story to tell. I just loved Brody. He was such a great guy.
Making Waves holds a plot that was a ton of fun to read. Right away I was swept up into Abby's world. While there is a romance in this one, there also is focus on friendship as well, which is always lovely. I wanted there to be a bit more drama at the end. There was a really great build up of the plot throughout the whole book, but I felt like everything was a bit too simplistic.
A must read for anyone who loves a good contemporary. Making Waves by Nicole Leigh Shepherd was a fast paced, all around fun kind of read. I look forward for the next installment in this series, as I just love it so much. It's a perfect blend of the beach, drama, romance, and some good old friendships.
