Sarah, Peter and their father are on a holiday vacation in a tropical country called Sumatra. Like many tourists on vacation they thought, "What could go wrong?" EVERYTHING. Sarah, and her family are boating off the shore of Sumatra when Peter notices the water and the beach has moved so far back it is exposing coral reefs and leaving fish flopping around on the wet sand. Plants that were once completely submerged under water were exposed, flopped over and wilted and a school of minnows flopped back and forth on top of the exposed coral. Sarah new something was wrong. Very wrong. Because of the strange current the boat was trapped. In the struggle to get out and run to high ground Sarah's father breaks his leg and they are forced to split into two groups: Sarah and Peter and their parents. As they are running Sarah takes on look back towards where her parents were. She sees her mom struggling with the weight of her dad. Behind them a black wall of water casts a shadow over the whole beach. This is the last she sees of her parents for a long time. But you have to read it to find out what happens next!

I recommend this book to kids 13 years old and up. Its a pretty easy read and you will finish it quick because its hard to put down. Its a perfect summer read and its actually based on a true story!
