The Watcher

The Watcher
By James Howe

Perfect Strangers 
Every day, she sits at the top of the stairs leading to the beach. 
Always writing in her little notebook. 
Always watching. 
Watching the loving big brother, so caring and attentive to his little sister. 
Watching the handsome lifeguard with his golden tan. 
But no matter how closely she watches, she can't begin to know the secrets behind the perfect facades of their lives. 
And they can't begin to know the truth about the strange, sad girl who each day sits alone—and watches.
