Callie can't breathe. She hasn't been able to ever since her mother died and her father took her away from the sea. Finally, her father gets a job offer he can't refuse which takes them to the Florida coast. There it is like Callie can take her first real breath in years. Now that they are closer to the sea though, Callie starts to feel it pulling her, calling to her. She knows that the sea is where she belongs, because that's where her mother is.

This was quite disappointing.  I don't know what it was about this novel, but I had the hardest time getting through it. I loved Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone and this one sounded so promising, but then...nothing. It took me almost a month to read this novel, which is crazy. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood for a Kat Rosenfield novel.

It was an interesting premise, but a bit predictable. Nothing about it was surprising and I figured things out long before Callie even thought to think about them. There's really not much else to say about this novel. It just wasn't right for me.
