Seven Tears into the Sea, by Terry Farley

Seven years ago, when Qwen was 10 years old, she went sleepwalking out on the beach and thought that she met a gypsy. But at the time, people figured that she was either making it up or had been molested. After the incident, she and her family moved away. Now at 17, she has returned to the beach to help her grandmother, and also to face her past and figure out what happened -- a mystery that is intensified when she encounters a young man who claims to have been that "gypsy" on the beach.

A bit clunky and hard to follow, this fantasy romance brings in lots of nice color and strong characters, but the plot veers all over the place and, by the end, becomes difficult to follow.
