The FIRST RAINS of OCTOBER

The moment August St. Claire ran off that cliff, she dropped like a rock. True, she was running and her legs kept kicking in the air—but then gravity yanked on her ankles and she plunged into the dark surging waters of the Pacific Ocean. No one at her high school graduation beach party noticed at first. After all, it was dark and foggy. Then they went berserk—kids scrambling, drunk, shrieking and sobbing. The coast guard never found the body. The next day the small coastal town of Loss Landing slipped into a wave of despair. 

(Please be advised. This novel is a Christian novel, and yet, contains some (real life) language and a couple of adult situations. (It is not meant to be salacious, however, it is representative of  real people in dramatic change to Christ.) This is not a book for teens.
