An achingly beautiful true coming-of-age story about a girl and her brothers growing up on an island nestled along the Southern California coastline. The story begins in the 1960’s and revolves around a family steeped in the shadow of addiction. The author takes us on an emotional, heartrending and fantastical journey. Staring into the ocean of her own backyard, she wonders, imagines what it would mean to fly over it, away from her troubled home, and into the neutrality of the clear blue sky above. Would she hear herself more clearly? Would it mute the voices of those who abused her? Would it make her stop holding her breath, and finally, just breathe.
