Kevin Luong walks to the ocean’s edge with a broken heart. Remembering a legend his mother told him, he lets seven tears fall into the sea. “I just want one summer—one summer to be happy and in love.” Instead, he finds himself saving a mysterious boy from the Pacific—a boy who later shows up on his doorstep professing his love. What he doesn’t know is that Morgan is a selkie, drawn to answer Kevin’s wish. As they grow close, Morgan is caught between the dangers of the human world and his legacy in the selkie community to which he must return at summer’s end.

They wander into the house, wipe their wet feet on the welcome mat, climb up the stairs and giggle as they pass Ann’s bedroom. She’s dancing with her headphones on, oblivious to the open door, swaying to the beat.
In Kevin’s bedroom, he quickly scrounges up some clean shirts and shorts. “Here, you can wear this,” he says, handing an outfit to Morgan and then ducking into his bathroom to change. He peels off the wetsuit and hangs it up in his shower, then leans his surfboard carefully against the wall, eyeing the crack. He’ll have to fix it tomorrow.
When he returns, Morgan is holding onto the wet board shorts, wearing the outfit Kevin gave him. He looks curiously at the rock collection prominently displayed on Kevin’s bookshelf. “These are beautiful,” he says.
“Here, I’ll take that,” Kevin says, holding out his hand for the bedraggled board shorts to hang in his shower. He’s certain now that they’re the ones from the lifeguard’s lost and found. Kevin’s starting to worry that Morgan doesn’t have any other clothes, but he doesn’t know how to bring it up. Money can be a touchy subject.
Morgan holds Kevin’s favorite specimen, a piece of green olivine on basalt. Kevin once almost convinced Ann it was an avocado roll—it certainly looks like one, bright green speckled with sesame seeds, wrapped in dark seaweed.
“That’s from Mexico. My family went on vacation to Baja last year, and I got that out of an old volcano.” He tries his best to describe the sweltering heat and the excitement of finding geodes and cracking them open with a hammer. Morgan listens in rapt silence as Kevin talks about the find and tilts the olivine so it catches the light. He sets it back in its spot behind its label, slowly so as not to disturb the other specimens, and Kevin is quietly pleased with Morgan's careful appreciation.
“I changed my mind,” Kevin blurts out.
“I do want this to be a date. For us, to do that,” he says, blushing. “I like you. A lot.”
Morgan’s face breaks into a bright, happy smile.
“And what do we do differently, for this to be a date?”
Kevin can feel the heat on his cheeks. “We can hold hands, if you like. Um, or kiss, if you want to. But we don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. I’m fine just hanging out and watching a movie with you.”
Morgan tilts his head and steps closer. “I want to,” he says, not specifying what, but Kevin knows immediately.
It’s just the quickest brush of lips, but Kevin feels it all the way to his toes. A warm curl of excitement blooms throughout his body, and Morgan’s mouth is warm and wet against his. It’s not like any kiss he’s had, chaste and sweet and over in a second, and yet his heart is still pounding after Morgan leans back. He’s close enough for Kevin to be able to count the eyelashes dark against his cheek.
Morgan ducks his head and asks, “Was that okay?”
Kevin's a little dazed, but he finds his voice. “Yeah. Yeah, that was great.”

NOW FOR AN AUTHOR Q & A WITH C.B. LEE: ENJOY FRIENDS:
Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing C.B. Lee, author of Seven Tears at High Tide.
Hi C.B., thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself, your background, and your current book.
Hello! Thank you for hosting me on your blog. I'm a bisexual writer from California and I love hiking and camping, just love sunsets and sunrises and absolutely everything in between. My current novel is Seven Tears at High Tide, a contemporary romance with a splash of the supernatural, and I hope you all wil enjoy it.
- Is there a character in your books that you can’t stand? (Antagonist for example) And what makes them someone you don’t like?
Aha, I don't want to spoil the story by talking about the main antagonist, but I will talk about another character. Miles isn't an antagonist, not really, but he's a jerk and he uses people. I think that's reason enough to dislike him.
Bec- wow he sounds like a real winner :P I can't wait to read the book, so I can dislike him too! :)
- Are there misconceptions people have about your genre?
Oh, so many. I feel like a lot of people look down on young adult novels and that it's not "literature," simply because it's aimed at teenagers. There's a lot of that in society that tends to take something that young people enjoy and disregard it simply because it's for that age group, like "oh, it's not serious, it's for children," like there can't be value in it. But I love the young adult genre simply because there is so much value in teenagers finding themselves and reading stories about other teenagers and wanting and hoping for stories of their own, finding joy in these characters and drawing parallels from them, experiencing wonderful and fantastic things.
Bec- I agree, I love a young adult novel that is written well and draws you in, sounds like this may be just the book for me!
- Is there message in your novel that you hope readers grasp?
There's a lot of focus in Seven Tears about choices, what others expect from the main characters, what the characters expect from themselves .
Bec- Man I have to read this book! :) I think it is important that young adult novels have that theme and that teens know that they do indeed have choices!
- How has your writing evolved since your first book? (If this is your first book, how do you hope it evolves?)
This is my first book! I hope my writing definitely improves in the future . I'm not entirely too confident about writing angst and I hope I can get better with layering emotion in the characters.
Bec- Congrats on publishing your first book, can't wait to read it and hear more from you in the future!
- One food you don’t care if you never eat it again.
Papaya. Oh gosh, I love all kinds of food, but I can't stand this particular fruit. I have no idea why.
Bec- I have never had it :), but just to be fair I will answer too, mine is Corn ( yuk)!!
Thanks for chatting with us C.B., it was fun and I know I am not alone in wishing you success in this book and for the future!
