Last June, the summer camp Quinn's family owns in Winship, Maine, was still a magical place. A place where wild blueberries grew no matter the season, a legendary sea monster lurked in the waters, and Quinn fell in love with her best friend, Dylan. Then the accident happened. Now it's winter, the magic has drained from Quinn's life, and she knows it's her fault.
But the new boy in town, Alexander, doesn't see her as the monster she believes herself to be. As Quinn lets herself open up again, she begins to understand the truth about love, loss, and monsters — real and imagined.
"[T]he summer before her senior year of high school, a tragic boating accident occurs. When the water overcomes human physical strength, Quinn loses her best male friend Dylan, the desire to be a competitive swimmer, and her passion for camp all at once. She goes through life in a daze of grief. Through a combination of time, support from family and friends, the process of rebuilding a boat, a spark for the new boy in town named Alexander, and her love of science, Quinn finds herself again.... A great work of realistic fiction with a romantic twist that will appeal to fans of YA for older teens." — Margaret A. Robbins, School Library Journal
