I loved this book. One of those savory stories with excellent writing and a gorgeous setting. It's a book that invites you to share it's curiosity about the natural world. I learned some things about the ocean and how easy it is to miss things when you're not looking.

This book has a juvenile main character that even Rachel Carson would love. Describes the west coast life and characters beautifully. Have read it a number of times and enjoy it every time.

The story of a 13 year old boy on Puget Sound. It is inspiring about marine life and an all round nice story.

Set in the author’s hometown of Olympia, Washington, this novel covers one summer in the life of Rachel Carson-obsessed insomniac thirteen-year-old Miles O'Malley. Miles’ consuming interest is the diverse and teaming sea life of Skookumchuck Bay. When he discovers, in quick succession, two rare and bizarre creatures – a giant squid and a ragfish - the media descends and Miles reluctantly becomes a local celebrity. Although Miles worries about his parents’ separation, his huge crush on his former babysitter and the increasing illness of an elderly friend, what dominates the story is the sea and its mysteries. A good read for both adults and teens.
