From Back Cover:
Seven year old Kelly had always loved to romp in the surf of California's endless summer. Then tragedy struck - a sailboat accident which took the lives of her parents and her sister. Now Kelly felt drawn to the sea for a different reason. She knew her sister wasn't really gone. Not as long as she could still hear Melissa calling to her at the oceans edge - and see her face where the sun glinted off the water. Brooke Hutchinson worried about the young niece who had been put into her care. Kellys strangeness since the tragedy had made her the victim of her schoolmates' cruelty. She seemed to spend more and more time simply staring out to sea. Then the accidents began, a series of gruesome, water related deaths. And Brooke realized with a chill of horror that someone was looking after Kelly - all too well.
