The psychological labyrinth of a young woman’s insidious connection to the sea, from the Edgar Award nominated author of Amelia Anne is Dead and Gone.

Callie Morgan has long lived choked by the failure of her own lungs, the result of an elusive pulmonary illness that has plagued her since childhood. A childhood marked early by the drowning death of her mother—a death to which Callie was the sole witness. Her father has moved them inland, away from the memories of the California coast her mother loved so much and toward promises of recovery—and the escape of denial—in arid, landlocked air.

But after years of running away, the promise of a life-changing job for her father brings Callie and him back to the coast, to Florida, where Callie’s symptoms miraculously disappear. For once, life seems delightfully normal. But the ocean’s edge offers more than healing air … it holds a magnetic pull, drawing Callie closer and closer to the chilly, watery embrace that claimed her mother. Returned to the ocean, Callie comes of age and comes into a family destiny that holds generations of secrets and very few happy endings.

Callie would be tough to cast amongst the current crop of young Hollywood actresses, just because she's a big, tall, and ultimately very physically imposing girl, and there aren't many of those to choose from; you'd basically need a teenage actress with the body of Gwendoline Christie (who plays Brienne of Tarth on "Game of Thrones.") But if she were tall and muscly enough, Nicole Boivin would be great for Callie. She played a sort of Frankenstein's monster on the Netflix series Hemlock Grove, and it had to have been such a tough role — I don't think she even had any lines; she had to act purely via facial expression — but she was fantastic.

For Callie's friend Jana, who's a really big, confident, talented, gorgeous girl, you'd have to get Sharon Rooney, definitely. I'd want Caleb Landry Jones for Ben; he's got the red hair and the nerd charm. I'd love to see Keke Palmer and Coco Jones bantering as Mika and Shanika. Famke Janssen as Callie's Aunt Nessa; she's got a sort of otherworldly sexiness. And Bryan Cranston as Callie's dad, because he's the best in the world at everything.

Kat Rosenfield is a writer, illustrator, advice columnist, entertainment journalist, zombie enthusiast, and author of two YA novels: AMELIA ANNE IS DEAD AND GONE (Dutton, July 2012) and INLAND (Dutton in June 2014.) When not writing fiction, she can be found shamelessly gossiping about movies and celebrities as a contributor for MTV News, and offering relationship and life advice as the resident agony aunt on Barnes & Noble's SparkLife.
