Tired of being crammed into a tiny hotel room with his mom, dad and brother, Davey escapes early one morning to a secluded beach. He doesn’t leave a note. Davey intends to enjoy the quiet and spend some time reading. However, the water is so beautiful. Disregarding the “No Swimming” sign, he decides to step into the water and instantly his whole world changes. Follow as this story unfolds and consider… what would you do if you were alone in the ocean, no one knows where you are, and you are surrounded by sharks?  (Booktalk by the Louisiana Young Readers' Choice Committee)
