I love when I read an author's first book published and find it to be this good! There are many things I like about this book. The plot is well thought out. The characters are likable and engaging. The family goes through many challenges and trials, as real families do.

There aren't exactly chapters in this book, but more like sections, each labeled with a year. 1969, 1970, 1976, 1982, 1990, 1993. Even though the story skips years at a time, it was done in such a clever way that I never felt like I was missing things.

Best of all, the whole concept of this place called Stiltsville fascinated me. This group of houses on stilts in the ocean, far from civilization, remote and full of opportunities for adventure, adds a great deal of interest to this book.

I also enjoyed reading a story that takes place in a part of Florida I've been to. Miami, Key Biscayne, Vizcaya, and the Biltmore Hotel in Coral Gables are all integral parts of this tale.
