From behind the mirrored lenses of my sunglasses, I snuck yet another peek at the most beautiful girl I had ever seen.

Her wet hair was slicked back from her face, a white towel was draped across her tanned shoulders, and her long bare legs were stretched out in front of her. Whoever she was, she was breathtaking. And there she was, in a red bikini, sitting three plastic lounge chairs away from me.


It's an ordinary nightmare of a family trip until Theo realizes that the beautiful girl beside the hotel pool is his childhood babysitter—and his first crush. Theo hasn't seen Ronnie for five years, but when she invites him to go with her—and her toddler son, Zach—on a road trip, he leaps at the opportunity to ditch his parents and head to Hollywood. They've only gone a few miles before Theo begins to regret his impulsive decision. Zach cries nonstop, and when they get pulled over by the police, Ronnie is clearly terrified. She says her ex-boyfriend is a cop and that he is looking for her. Theo wants to trust her, but he suspects she is hiding something. And when they reach Los Angeles and she disappears, leaving him to look after Zach, he needs to find out the truth—and decide where his loyalties lie.

CM Magazine - February 8, 2013
"Even with the easy-to-read vocabulary and sentence structure, Stevenson has provided some insight into Theo's thinking...The quickly moving plot, the hint of mystery, and a likable character wrapped up in accessible text [make this a] good addition to the 'Orca Soundings' collection."
