Miranda is a 16 year old New York City girl who is traveling to her old ancestral home that her mom just inherited on Selkie Island, Georgia. Miranda has her life in order -- when she returns from Georgia she is going to intern at the Natural History Museum and continue with her science studies. She has been a tutor in her prestigious science high school and has avoided literature and history whenever possible. Life on the island is so strange to her. She learns that her mother lived a completely different life before she became a plastic surgeon in NYC.

Miranda's grandmother Isadora was part of an old privileged community of Summer Holiday visitors on the island who carefully kept away from the native islanders. The "Heirs" had a posh live-style who lived near each other every summer and yet dispersed to the 4 winds for the rest of the year. Slowly over the short time Miranda is there she learns that the divide between her family and the native islanders isn't as large as she once thought and she finally finds a friend she can speak with about her feelings and hopes.

This is a great story that speaks about human fascination with the ocean realm.
