Thin, pale, awkward, bullied, Sam Every is a 13-year-old who finds comfort among his friends and his days at the beach. The ocean beckons to him. It is where he feels safest. Fitting in no longer matters when he is near the Pacific’s rolling waves.
Gazing toward the endless blue where it touches the horizon, he imagines the ports he might someday reach and ponders his future.
Little does he know an apparition - a hauntingly beautiful girl from the sea - will lead him farther from his home than he could ever dream, for destiny has given him a dangerous legacy.
