'People like to think fish don't have feelings - it's easier that way - but as I watch the last guppy squirm in his bag, his eyes seem to plead with me. I get the sense that it knows just as well as I do that bad things are on the horizon.'

Mika Arlington has her perfect summer all planned out, but the arrival of both her estranged grandmother and too-cool Dylan are going to make some very big waves in her life.

Told with Natalie Whipple's signature whip-smart wit and warmth, this is a story about prejudice, growing up and the true meaning of sticking by your family.

Review quote

A warm, unusual story of first love, family, friendship - and fish. * Metro * A romantic book that deals sensitively with real life issues -- Alison Southern * School Library Association * There's a lovely wholesomeness at the core of this novel, which has some very positive messages about empathy, identity and understanding -- Deirdre Sullivan * Inis Reading Guide *

About Natalie Whipple

Natalie Whipple accidentally killed three goldfish in the process of writing this novel (which Mika would be very ashamed of), but she hasn't killed any since. She grew up in California and spent many a family vacation in Monterey, but now she lives in Utah with her husband and three children and spends many days wishing she lived by a beach.
