Clearwater Crossing #1; Get a Life:
When a classmate is diagnosed with leukemia, the students at Clearwater Crossing High School organize a fund-raising carnival. But after they’ve formed teams to work the booths, the members of one group find they couldn’t be more different. There’s aloof Melanie, the girl who has it all, and wannabe Nicole, who only wishes she did. Best friends Peter and Jenna jump at the chance to make a difference, while football jock Jesse sees a perfect opportunity to impress. Brooding Miguel keeps to himself, to the frustration of confident Leah. And tagalong Ben? He just wants to make some friends.
Soon the carnival is over, and the surprisingly close-knit team members drift back to their regular lives. But when an unexpected tragedy strikes, will the eight friends come together again? Or is it time to say good-bye?
Clearwater Crossing #2; Reality Check:
Jenna and her friends are having a car wash to help needy kids, but there’s more in the autumn air than soapsuds. . . .
Leah and Miguel are trying to keep their new love a secret . . . but a heartbroken Jenna is the first to find out. And if her over-before-it-began romance isn’t bad enough, her younger sister Maggie is driving her crazy! How can Jenna have a life when she’s sharing a room with the enemy?
Peter’s got a crush too—on Jenna! He doesn’t want to ruin the special friendship they share. Is telling her the truth the answer?
Nicole’s determined to win a national model search. It would be sweet payback to conceited Jesse for humiliating her at school. But payback doesn’t quite fit with Nicole’s resolution to be a better person. Does it?
Clearwater Crossing #3; Heart & Soul:
After a cheerleading stunt goes terribly wrong, Melanie is rushed to the hospital. Her frightened friends are praying for her recovery. Drifting in and out of consciousness, she feels a comforting presence. Is her imagination playing tricks on her, or is Melanie not as alone as she thinks?
Of course Nicole is concerned about her so-called friend, but she has a modeling contest to worry about. She’s still following a strict diet—she’s got to be in perfect shape. Especially now that Jesse has begun to take her seriously!
Jenna finally has a room she can call her own! She loves its privacy, its spaciousness. But will her new surroundings cause hurt feelings between Jenna and her closer-than-close sisters?
Clearwater Crossing #4; Promises, Promises:
Halloween is around the corner, and Eight Prime is putting in a lot of hours working on a spooky haunted house fund-raiser. It’s the perfect opportunity for Leah and Miguel to bring their budding relationship into the open. So what is Miguel so afraid of?
Jesse’s off the football team—maybe forever. If he can’t convince Coach Davis that he’s given up drinking, he can give up his NFL dreams for good. Jesse’s ready to promise the coach anything to get back on the Wildcats. But promises can be hard to keep.
Melanie would never have believed she’d be interested in a do-gooder like Peter. Yet lately he’s the only thing she thinks about. Not that she’s falling for him, or anything dumb like that. She and Peter would make a terrible couple. Wouldn’t they?"
