This Side of Sunny
by Agay Llanera
Like her boyfriend back in the States, 18-year-old Mela Connor is spending spring break by the beach. The difference is she'll be on an exotic island, where she'll spend the next six days finding her estranged mother. In the process, Mela meets her self-appointed tour guide--the hunky beach bum, Paolo, who helps Mela make amends with her past while struggling not to fall in love with her.
