From S. E. Smith, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, comes this emotionally charged coming-of-age story filled with action, adventure, and suspense for listeners of all ages.
An act of defiance will either kill her or change her life forever.
Sixteen-year-old Makayla Summerlin enjoyed one thing in her crazy, messed-up existence: hanging with her friends at school. But her life is uprooted when she suddenly finds herself forced to live with a grandfather she barely remembers. One act of defiance will change her life forever. Having trouble adjusting to her new home, she sets sail in her grandfather's old sailboat. On a journey that will challenge everything she has ever believed about herself, Makayla must overcome her fears if she, and a surprising stowaway, are to survive.

"Young Adventure Story"
Strong, dedicated & brave.
The fact I could visualize this young gal and guy doing what they did.
No this I believe was a first.
Oh there were times I cried, ah okay there was many times I cried. But I laughed also.
I usually like more adult themed books, but this was a very nice change for me. SE Smith did a great job.
If you do not understand where you are and have a oh way me. This book will give you strength to step out and try just a little hard. Sometime you just need to believe in yourself.
This book kept taking turns i wasn't expecting and i loved it! It may be marked as a young adult book but any age or gender is going to be happy with this story!
I found myself driving around just to hear more of the book. I listened whenever I could.
The best coming of age story I ever had the pleasure of reading / listen to. If any coming of age story should become a movie this should be the first on the list!
