When Sea Becomes Sky

Bex and Davey's summer in the saltmarsh is different this year, thanks to the record-breaking drought. Even the fish seem listless — and each day the water level lowers farther. When they discover a mysterious underwater statue, they're thrilled at the chance to solve the puzzle of its origin. This is the summer adventure they've been waiting for.

When they learn of a development plan that will destroy their special spot, they'll need to act quickly. Unfortunately, sometimes progress happens whether you're ready or not. What will it mean if Bex and Davey lose their corner of the marsh where otters frolic and dragonflies buzz — their favorite place to be siblings together?

As Bex and Davey attempt to save the statue and their beloved marsh, they come to see that the truth is not as simple as it seems... ultimately discovering so much more about life, permanence, love, and loss than they ever expected. Award-winning author Gillian McDunn crafts a gorgeous story of love and siblinghood, of secret statues and island life, of holding on and letting go.

Description

"This layered mystery is crafted with an eye on the statue and its heart focused on Bex as she navigates this special summer when she is in charge of her 9-year-old brother.... The rainless skies stand for suppressed emotions, with the otters, crabs, and buzzing insects creating a timeless, swampy backdrop. The pages shine with love, loss, and a sense of place; autobiographical ties to the story are explained in the author’s note." — Kirkus Reviews
