Summary
Medina and her brother, Jim, turn to surfing when their mother becomes unbalanced and uses food and her dependence on Jim against her ex-husband.
Critique
The complex family relationships make this a compelling book. The end is somewhat sad, but satisfying. Some drug usage and mild sex scenes make it a book for older teens or adults.
