The Year of Fog - Michelle Richmond I was drawn to this book like a moth to a flame...it bored me to tears, yet was compelling at the same time. It's one of those books that's unbelievable, yet you have to see how the story ends. I also read a review where it said the name of the surfboard used in the book was made up, and for some reason it annoyed me,and I had a hard time getting pass that-mainly because it was such a large focus of the second half of the book.
