Publisher Comments:

One moonlit night, thirteen-year-old Miles O'Malley sneaks out of his house and goes exploring on the tidal flats of Puget Sound. When he discovers a rare giant squid, he instantly becomes a local phenomenon. But Miles is really just a kid on the verge of growing up, infatuated with the girl next door, worried that his parents will divorce and fearful that everything, even the bay he loves, is shifting away from him.The fertile strangeness of marine tidal life becomes a subtly executed metaphor for the bewilderments of adolescence in this tender and authentic coming-of-age novel.-Publishers WeeklyAs crisp and clean as a cool dip into the water, and just about as refreshing.-Entertainment Weekly A] graceful and inventive first novel.-The New York Times Book ReviewMove over, Holden Caulfield; here's Miles. . . . An uncommon and uncommonly good coming-of-age novel. -Chicago Tribune
