Summary
A lighthearted coming-of-age debut echoing novels like Karen Russell's Swamplandia! and Carol Rifka Brunt's Tell the Wolves I'm Home. A.Z. McKinney is on the shores of greatness. Now all she needs is a boat. When the Sea of Santiago appears overnight in a cow pasture in Arkansas, it seems, to some, a religious miracle. But to high school sophomore A.Z. McKinney, it marks her chance to make history-as its first oceanographer. All she needs is to get out of the water. And when a cute, conceptual artist named Kristoff moves to town, A.Z. realizes she may have found a first mate. Together, they make a plan to build a boat and study the sea in secret. But from fighting with her best friend to searching for a tourist-terrorizing alligator (that may or may not be a crocodile), distractions are everywhere . . . With her self-determined oceanic destiny on the line, A.Z. finds herself at odds with everything she thought she knew about life, love, and the sea. To get what she wants, she'll have to decide whether to sink or float . . . But which one comes first?
