Ebb & Flow

What a beautiful poetic narrative about regret and second chances.  After Jett's father is imprisoned he makes the wrong kind of friend and starts to get it trouble.  It culminates with an incident that cause his mom to send him to live with his grandfather for the summer on a rocky island.  Over the course of the book Jett slowly begins to heal, face his regrets, own up to his mistakes, and forgive himself and others who have let him down.  While a somewhat slow book, as a poetic narrative it is already a bit short and I think readers will stick with it.
