The winner of THE LIFEGUARD by Deborah Blumenthal is...

...Dana Carey!

Congratulations, Dana. You should have an e-mail from me in your inbox.


The Lifeguard is the story of 16-year-old Sirena Shane who is shipped off to the Rhode Island shore to spend the summer with her Aunt Ellie, because her parents, at home in Texas, are going through a difficult divorce.

It turns out to be a summer that will transform her life – forever.

She moves into a beach house filled with ghosts, falls hard for a hot lifeguard with mysterious healing powers, and meets an 80-year-old Brazilian artist and shaman who leaves her an unusual gift.

Based on the blurb, what kind of YA would you call The Lifeguard? Paranormal?

Creepy Query Girl said...

wow, sounds like a really interesting read! Congrats to the winner!

Casey McCormick said...

I think it would be considered paranormal, technically, though it seems to be more contemporary with paranormal elements.

Here's the interview, if you'd like to read it!
