"A  young girl and her family are reeling in the wake of a tragedy. Tragic at times yet joyful, a true glimpse into the mind of an unusual character who will make you yearn for a life under the sea, or at least on the coast. Written from several perspectives, this tale will draw you in as though you were a member of its cast.

A reminder that our differences are what make us unique. A showcase of why family should be cherished. This is a great read for teens and adults alike!"
