Laguna Beach author tells the story of a teenage surfer
Laguna Beach author Lynnette Beers will publish her latest novel “Caught Inside” about a teenage surf champion on July 1.
Lead character Maddie Fong is painfully aware of being the outsider at her new Southern California high school. She is teased for being different and tries her best to adjust to her new life. One day, she and her mother meet an intriguing man from Hawaii who introduces Maddie to surfing, which gives her a sense of new and exciting possibilities.
Beers grew up in San Diego County but has lived in Laguna Beach since the early 1990s. The book is set primarily in Southern California and reflects Beers’ love of the ocean.
Surfers will understand the meaning of the book’s namesake “caught inside” – when a surfer or swimmer is caught between the white water of a broken wave and the beach.
Beers is an English teacher and also an editor for a small newspaper publisher. She earned a master’s degree in fiction writing from Chapman University. She has written four novels and is working on a fifth. His latest work will be available through Amazon as an e-book and in print. The book is available for pre-order.
