Sharks have to keep moving to stay alive, and so does Lucy Everhart, whose mother (a prominent shark researcher) died when she was eight. Her grief is bearable, thanks to dinners with her father, discussions with her neighbor, and adventures with her best friend, Fred. When Lucy and Fred hear that a great white shark has appeared in the bay, it feels like the beginning of something—the beginning of a summer full of tragedy and grief, science and storytelling, and love of all kinds. Smart, heartbreaking, and beautifully-written, this is the kind of book that will be swimming in the back of your brain months after you read it. -Lily (RBB Staff)
