I thought "Lifeguard," by Deborah Bumenthal would be one of those light, summer romances. The cover's book cover caught me eye, frankly and was instrumental in me choosing it over other titles. It turns out that the book is just a bit more than your typical summer yarn. It took unexpected twists and turns for me, even if at times they came out of the blue and did not really make sense. I liked that the narrator was very three-dimensional at the cost of being sometimes unlikeable. I am not a fan of supernatural novels, but this one just balances that fine line between magical in the literal and literary sense.
