After her mother dies, Astrid moves to the small Oregon coastal town of Hook Bay to live with her grandfather, Steve Barton. She has to cope with life in a new environment with old friends’ help and betrayal, a new school to attend for her senior year and an early encounter with the forces of nature.
Steve’s love and guidance, as well as Astrid’s ability as an artist helps her through difficult times. New friends enter her life, old ones return and her talent is encouraged by the local school principal. Her life now has a future.
That is until the tsunami builds up in the northern Pacific Ocean and heads east…
Directly towards Hook Bay.
The adventures of this teenage girl and her wisdom in overcoming the many good and bad things that has happened to her and her grandfather and friends in one year of life, make an interesting story – a good read with several plausible twists and turns that make you want to investigate further.
