The Beached Ones by Colleen M. Story is an exciting adventure, following Daniel as he tries to cope with what seems to be the end of his life. Having a terrible accident, he suddenly wakes up in a strange place with no memory of how he got there. An old flame and her boyfriend travel with him as he tries to reach his little brother in time to pick him up for a summer visit.
The Beached ones by Colleen M. Story is a great story, though it covers some tough topics.
