Publisher's Summary

Georgie, Kia, Micki and Ace are thrown together at an elite girls' surfing camp. They're not friends straight away - there's jealousy, insecurity, secrets and lies to deal with first. Yet they soon realize that they need to stick together, because their friendship brings out the best in each of them. But will they all make the grade?From the award-winning author of The Story of Tom Brennan (winner of the 2006 CBC Book of the Year Award for Older Readers).


Audible Editor Reviews

Four very different girls. Three short surf camp weeks. One lifetime-changing summer.
Ace, Georgie, Kia, and Micki, elite surfers all, are assigned to the Starfish Cabin. From the outside their lives may look great, but that is not how they feel. Edwina Wren effectively establishes the girls as distinct individuals, an important achievement in a story told through alternating chapters from each of their viewpoints as jealousy, insecurity, secrets, and lies are stripped away. The bickering turns to laughter and one’s enemy becomes the foe of all of them as girls who short weeks before were mostly strangers, end camp bonded as "sisters".
