Description

Grief can sometimes feel like being caught in the jaws of a great white shark. J.C., who goes by the nickname Sharky, has been having a hard time ever since his best friend died in front of him in what might or might not have been an accident. Shell-shocked, Sharky spends countless hours holed up in his room, obsessively watching documentaries about sharks and climate change--and texting his dead friend. Hoping a change of location will help, Sharky's mom sends him to visit his dad on a remote island in Canada. There, Sharky meets a girl who just may show him how to live--and love--again.show more

Review quote

"More important is the personal journey JC takes to reconnect with his father, make new friends, and recapture his sense of self along with his voice. The author skillfully pulls together the disparate parts of JC's life through his deeply felt, sometimes humorous, first-person narration. JC's voice, spoken and unspoken, rings with a note of authenticity." "Kirkus""show more
