Dori Seward can’t wait to get out of Eastcove, a sleepy fishing village on the border of New Brunswick and Maine. She bides her time by hanging out with friends, attending swim club, and holding her biggest competition, Colby–who wants more than just friendship, at arm’s length.
Then Tor Riley comes to town and he has everything Dori dreams of in a boyfriend–looks, athleticism and mystery.
But Tor also has a tantalizing secret and Dori is determined to find out what it is. The truth is crazier than her wildest imaginations and more dangerous, too. Dori has new enemies, and they will do anything to get to her.
Her life, her dreams and her love for Tor are all weighing in the balance. Will Dori risk it all in order to have it all?

Seaweed is an enjoyable light read. I didn't care for the love triangle going on with the two male main characters. In fact that was the only main issue I had with it, that and Dori on occasion got my nerves. (I'm nor comparing it to any other YA book here)
It was well written, with an engaging story line, and a seamless blending of reality with the paranormal. It was also very well though out.
It is a good clean romance with a fast pace with an ending that will leave you wanting more, with hopefully a sequel. I would recommend this one to my readers with children, it'd hit perfect for the 12 to 15 crowd.
This ebook is one I would surely hand to my 13 year old daughter.
