About this item

Jen Malone, author of teen novels Wanderlost and Map to the Stars, will take readers to the high seas - literally - in this contemporary YA novel about a girl facing the dissolution of her parents' marriage, a new romance, and self-discovery while sailing down the Pacific coast.

After concluding that her is to blame for her parents' recent divorce, Cassandra McClure is hoping to stay as far away from her as possible. With a summer of freedom right around the corner, it shouldn't be too hard. But when a forty-foot sailboat appears in her driveway and her mom announces that Cassie and her brother Drew will be accompanying her on a four-month sailing trip down to Mexico, Cassie's plans for the summer go, quite literally, overboard.

Once the three set sail, tensions quickly rise. So meeting Jonah - a gorgeous, whip-smart deckhand - is an unexpected bright spot on an otherwise dim horizon. Though she tries to keep him at a distance - considering the upheaval of her home life - their chemistry is impossible to ignore, and Cassie soon finds herself questioning everything: Should she go for it with Jonah? Can she forgive her mom? Will home ever feel the same? With life's unpredictable tides working against her, Cassie must decide whether to swim against them, or dive right in.



About the Author

Jen Malone

I once spent a year traveling the world solo from Nepal to Romania to Fiji, where I learned 99. 9% of humanity is pretty freaking awesome yet somehow doesn't share my love of ice cubes in a drink. I met my husband on the highway, literally. In fact our meet-cute was SO cute we had a whole story written about it in Ladies Home Journal. My twin boys placed second in the Most Identical contest at the International Festival of Twins. Their little sister placed first in the most adorable contest at the All The People In Our Living Room Festival. I once accompanied a pajama-clad Oprah Winfrey (and her puppies) through the laundry room of the Four Seasons. I have also been in a hotel room alone with a shirtless Mark Wahlberg. In both those instances, it was not what you think. Oh, and I went into early labor while on Stevie Nicks' tour bus. That is pretty much what you think. Here's the more official bio:Jen Malone writes fun and flirty YA travel romances with HarperCollins and humorous "girl power" MG adventures with Simon & Schuster. She once spent a year traveling the world solo, met her husband on the highway (literally) , and went into labor with her identical twins while on a rock star's tour bus. These days she saves the drama for her books. You can learn more about Jen and her books at . Find her on Twitter and Instagram @jenmalonewrites.
