a€œDe la PeApa has created a rare thing: a plot-driven YA with characters worthy of a John Green novel.a€-Entertainment Weekly, A- a€œAction is first and foremost. . . . De la PeApa can uncork delicate but vivid scenes.a€ a€”The New York Times Shy took the summer job to make some money. In a few months on a luxury cruise liner, he'll rake in the tips and be able to help his mom and sister out with the bills. And how bad can it be? Bikinis, free food, maybe even a girl or twoa€”every cruise has different passengers, after all. But everything changes when the Big One hits. Shy's only weeks out at sea when an earthquake more massive than ever before recorded hits California, and his life is forever changed. The earthquake is only the first disaster. Suddenly it's a fight to survive for those left living.

But most appealing is the empathetic teen, portrayed as a tough guy with a romantic side, who will appeal to both males and females, and is likely to appear in the upcoming sequel.q-School Library Journal qA straight-up tour de force, a breathless, horrifying dash into the void...he fun of de la PeApa's latest is how unexpectedly he blends genres, making this, in a sense, four books in one: a finely observed social-class drama, an on-the-sea survival adventure, a global-disaster book, and a contagion thriller.q-Booklist Pura Belpre Author Honor Award Winner An ALSC 2014 Notable Children's Book Pick From the Hardcover edition.He watched, horrified, as one of them broke from the pack, rose up and banged its snout into the bottom of his boat, knocking him on his ...
