Nothing is as red as the sea that day.
I don’t think often on my father’s body strung out through the reddening surf. Instead, I remember him as he was before the race: afraid.
I won’t make the same mistake.

Heart pounding action, a touch of romance, and a mythic breed of predatory water horses.  How could you want anything more?  Check out The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater at the VCPL.

I wouldn’t do that to you.
