From the critically acclaimed author of The List comes a stunning new novel about a girl who must say goodbye to everything she knows after a storm wreaks havoc on her hometown.
Aberdeen is drowning.
Keeley Hewitt always has a joke to crack. Except there is nothing funny about her life right now. Her hometown of Aberdeen has always been known for ies out, two boys compete for her heart. One is a boy she’s had a crush on forever, and the other is one she thinks she could fall in love with. But the water is rising higher and higher, and Keeley is faced with losing everything she’s ever known, and the promise of things she’s only ever wished for…
“Keeley is a realistically flawed heroine, and Vivian allows readers to feel intimately connected to the depth of her regret and her urgent need to reconnect with pieces of her past.”–Publishers Weekly, starred review
“At its core, this is a love story—romantic, familial, and, above all, friend-to-friend—with a unique hook. Keeley, though brash, is a relatable heroine who will speak to teens facing their own times of transition.”–Booklist
