Jen Malone, author of teen novels Wanderlost and Map to the Stars, will take readers to the high seas-literally-in this contemporary
YA novel about a girl facing the dissolution of her parents' marriage, a new romance, and self-discovery while sailing down
the Pacific coast. After concluding that her is to blame for her parents' recent divorce, Cassandra McClure is hoping to stay
as far away from her as possible. With a summer of freedom right around the corner, it shouldn't be too hard. But when a forty-foot
sailboat appears in her driveway and her mom announces that Cassie and her brother Drew will be accompanying her on a four-month
sailing trip down to Mexico, Cassie's plans for the summer go, quite literally, overboard. Once the three set sail, tensions
quickly rise. So meeting Jonah-a gorgeous, whip-smart deckhand-is an unexpected bright spot on an otherwise dim horizon. Though
she tries to keep him at a distance-considering the upheaval of her home life-their chemistry is impossible to ignore, and
Cassie soon finds herself questioning everything: Should she go for it with Jonah? Can she forgive her mom? Will home ever
feel the same?
With life's unpredictable tides working against her, Cassie must decide whether to swim against them,
or dive right in.
