Staff Reviews

Set in Grand Haven, MI, 17 year old Elise Faulkner comes of age in the shadow of her scandalous great grandmother, thwarted former beauty queen mother,  more vivacious younger sister, shyness and 1970’s view of  women’s role in society. Amidst it all, she befriends worldly Chiara who introduces her to vintage, hooky and dream-worthy love, all of which change her life.

— From Sherry's Picks


Elise Faulkner is more at home in the waters of her beloved Lake Michigan than on land where her beauty queen mom is always on her back about her lack of a social life; her sister is dating the boy of her dreams; her favorite penpal--the one who wrote about mermaids in Ghana--has gotten married and ended their correspondence; and no one's allowed to talk about her glamorous great-grandmother, the deep-sea wreck diver. Elise is biding her time with books until she can flee. But then crazy Chiara Hanover pops into her life, as does Miguel, a mysterious carnival worker whose dark future has been predicted by a gypsy.
