A Los Angeles Times bestseller and now a new film featuring Jennifer Garner and Maika Monroe.
Medina Mason is a defiant, awkward 14-year-old newcomer to the affluent beach community of Palos Verdes, California. As her parents' marriage disintegrates and her beloved brother falls prey to the temptations of drugs and the lunacy of his mother, Medina surfs to survive, finding a bitter solace in the rough comfort of the waves.
"An inspiring portrait of a young woman unswayed by other people's pettiness" (Mademoiselle), this is the moving story of growing up "different," of the love between siblings, and of one girl's power to save herself.
