Review: Lines in the Sand (Crossing the Line Prequel) by S.C. Montgomery

Lines in the Sand (Crossing the Line Prequel) by S.C. Montgomery
Published: October 10, 2014
Two best friends. One emotional adventure.

When Reed Young and Jonah King unearth some mysterious remains at their favorite beach hangout, their summer is thrust into an exciting tailspin.
Determined to get to the bottom of the mystery, they embark on a heartrending journey to find out the truth . . . and make it right.

But neither of them expected the secrets they would find.

***Reader note***While Lines in the Sand is a standalone novella, appropriate for younger readers, it is intended as a prequel to Two Blue Lines, which continues Reed Young’s story as he’s forced into a situation nobody wants to find themselves in at sixteen. Read and enjoy at your own discretion. 
My Thoughts
Lines in the Sand by S.C. Montgomery is a short prequel to Two Blue Lines. I appreciated reading this novella first because it gave me a glimpse into Reed Young and his best friend Jonah.

These two thirteen year old boys live by the ocean, and one day when they are enjoying the beach they come across a skeleton bone and some articles of clothing. At first, they are led to believe it’s the remains of an old witch that went missing many years prior and to come in contact with her would be a curse. However, when they find out the true backstory to who the skeleton bone and clothing belongs to, it ignites a deep sentiment that forever becomes a part of Reed Young’s life.

This story is engaging, short and enjoyable. I highly recommend readers who are considering to read Two Blue Lines to start off with this book first. Good story!
