Caught up in the lies, illusions, and mystery of Newport Beach, teenage medium Aries Dade delves deeper into the circumstances surrounding her mother’s death. Still unable to communicate with her mother, she relies on the aid of several spirits, discovering the identities of two of them, and how they relate to her.

As the second novel in the Neptune’s Window trilogy, Deep Stare thrusts Aries further into the scandal of Newport Beach High School, where everyone has their own secret, including the death of the school’s most popular and beloved friend. But Aries has a secret of her own. She can communicate with their dead friend.

Are you ready to take a deep stare into Neptune’s Window?

EXCERPT:
Aries sat on a bar stool while the group talked about the upcoming football game.

“You’re going, right?” Paige asked.

Aries nodded, but after taking the shot she didn’t feel like participating in anymore school events.

Don’t beat yourself up,” Joel said. “It was one shot. You’re fifteen, you’re bound to screw up once in a while. Happens to all of us.

Did it happen to you?

All the time. That’s probably how I ended up here.

Aries pressed her lips together, not ready for the answer to her next question. But she asked anyway. With this group?

Yep. Not really with Paige, though.” He began to whisper. “Just between you and me, her voice bugged me too.

Aries laughed. Why are you whispering?

“What’s so funny,” Michael asked.

Aries straightened her shoulders. “Nothing.”

Michael shook his head. “God, you’re a strange chick, Dade.”

Piper walked over, draping herself around Aries. “Join the fun. We’re talking about your boyfriend.”

Aries stood as Joel said, “Do me a favor, and relay these lyrics to Piper. It’s not in the way you look or act. It’s in that deep stare we once shared.

Aries smirked. Sorry Joel, but I’d feel way lame saying that to her.

“Please.”

Seriously?

If you help me, I’ll help you.

How?

What do you want more than anything?

You know what I want; I want to talk to my mom.

Exactly.

Aries took a deep breath, her face flushing from embarrassment. Joel, I’m sorry, but I can’t do it.

Yes you can.

Piper scrutinized her. “What’s wrong?”

Aries hesitated, and then whispered the lyrics to Piper.

All the color drained from Piper’s face as she let go of Aries and clutched her forehead. Her eyes could have popped out of their sockets. “What? How?” She fell forward and clung to the table.

Aries tried to help her stabilize. “Are you okay?”

Piper took long deep breaths, gripping the chair until her knuckles turned white. Throwing the chair toward the pool, she screamed, “Get out. Everybody get out of here. Now.” She ran into the house.

“What the hell did you say to her?” Michael asked.

Aries shrugged. “I don’t know.”

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
LL Lewin is the author of the Neptune's Window Trilogy. A native of Southern California, she was born in Los Angeles County and grew up in Orange County. She graduated from the University California, Irvine with a degree in psychology and social behavior. After teaching for several years and interacting with the youth almost daily, she was inspired to write a young adult mystery novel, which morphed into a little bit more. Since things happen in threes for her (her initials, triple Sagittarius, the third born) the novel turned into a trilogy and reaffirmed her belief that three's a charm.

She loves all things astrological, metaphysical, and spiritual. With her sun, moon, and rising all in the sign of Sagittarius, She's as Sagittarius as they come, optimistic, freedom-loving, and ever so tactless.

Her three passions in life are writing, traveling, and soccer. You'll either find her writing at the beach, on an island somewhere, or on a soccer field. And her three vices are chocolate, pizza, and champagne, and not necessarily in that order.
