Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0613628608, School & Library Binding)Elizabeth Sheridan, now 12, returns with her extended family to her grandmother’s beach house. Elizabeth has been looking forward to the trip all winter, but almost immediately things begin to go wrong. Adam, the eldest cousin, is withdrawn and moody. His world shattered by the deaths of his two best friends, he refuses to participate in family events — or stay at Grandma’s house. Elizabeth watches how everyone reacts to Adam’s behavior. Even Grandma, whose sense of right and wrong guides them all, is shaken. As the newest member of her adoptive family, Elizabeth becomes the intermediary between Adam and the rest of the clan. One thing is certain: it will take more than the summer to sort things out. As in The Ocean Within, readers will become immersed in how even the strongest families deal with change.
