When Aster wakes alone on a tropical island, she has no idea what's happened, why she's there, or where to find her younger sister, Poppy. Her last memories are blurred. All she can remember is being on a boat with her aunt and other members of the ecovillage where she was sent to live after the death of her mother. But Sam, who once met the sisters on a plane, makes links between the mystery of their disappearance and suspicious happenings in his own life. Though Aster can't think clearly, she feels the answers to all her questions may be buried beneath the sea. But nothing can prepare her for the secrets and revelations that she will uncover in her search for her sister. The more Aster searches for Poppy, the stranger things get. There is a secret deep in the water. A secret with the potential to change medical history.
Awakening stranded on a tropical island with no memory of what happened, Aster investigates a secret underwater world to find her missing sister, while Sam connects their disappearance to suspicious events in his own life.

After losing their mother to cancer, Aster and her sister are flown out to their aunt Iona in Australia, who takes them to a mysterious ecovillage. Next thing Aster knows, she's waking up alone on a beach, with no idea where to find the underwater-breathing boy who saved her from drowning. Meanwhile, Sam, who met the girls on their plane to Australia, searches for them, even as his grandpa's worsening condition drives him to make a deal with a doctor that leads to a shocking discovery. Alternating between Aster's and Sam's perspectives, Galvin explores the reality of cancer through Sam's desperation to find a cure and Aster's struggle to work through grief. It's also a story of survivalâwith Aster battling sharks, facing off with jellyfish, and finding the courage to stand on her ownâthat weaves in several mystery elements via Sam's investigation into the ecovillage and Aster's search for her missing sister. An emotional journey of strength and grief set on a stunning island backdrop. Grades 6-8. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
