Description:

Anise can't wait to spend the summer before her senior year surfing and hanging out on the beach with friends. Santa Cruz is more than her home-it's her heart. But when her aunt is in a serious car accident, Anise must say goodbye to California to go help care for her three young cousins in Nebraska-the last place Anise wants to be. As much as she loves her family, it's hard to put her past behind her when she's living in the childhood house of the mother who abandoned her. But then she meets Lincoln, a charismatic, one-armed skater who challenges her to swap her surfboard for a skateboard, and she discovers that sometimes the only way to find your footing is to let go.

Quotes:

...worthy of a spot in any teen's beach bag., School Library Journal

Silverman's debut is an entertaining and well-done coming-of-age story featuring a likable protagonist who learns that home is less about place and more about being surrounded by loved ones and friends. Silverman does a commendable job showcasing a diverse cast of characters, and the interracial romance is sweet and clean. The situations feel genuine and realistic...Those who enjoy Huntley Fitzpatrick and Jenny Han should give this one a try. There's lots to like here, and Silverman proves she is a rising author to watch out for., RT Book Reviews

Anise's reluctance to leave, rooted in worries of forgetting home and being forgotten, will resonate with readers who've ever been homesick...A quick summer read to reassure teens who worry about college or blooming where they're planted., Kirkus

Debut novelist Silverman realistically captures Anise's love for her surfing life and the terrible sacrifice she makes when leaving it behind...Hand to fans of Sarah Dessen and Jenny Han..., Booklist

Narrator Laurence Bouvard has the voice of surfer-girl Anise down pat., AudioFile Magazine
