This short story was much better than "Aquamarine", which is the only other one I've read (so far) by this author. I could see this one being made into a movie much easier than Aquamarine had just due to its unique plot and characters that were fairly easy to relate to. It has some wonderful life-lessons and a happy ending. What more can you ask for?

Oak Grove is a dry, dusty town haunted by memories of a past flood. Everyone dreads the water-except two brothers, Trevor and Eli McGill. Nicknamed Trout and Eel for their darting and quickness and the thin webbing between their fingers and toes, the boy's dream of the farthest seas of a mysterious past they barely remember.
Martha Glimmer, the boys' fierce and loyal freind, has her own reasons to help them reach their hearts' desire. She is running away from her own memories-of her mother's death, of her father's grief, of the time before her heart was borken.
Little do Martha, Trout, and Eel know that running away will lead them on a journey back to their own, true natures...

This is the lesser known companion of Aquamarine about a couple of young boys' yearning for the sea. Very sweet, though also sad at certain points. Well worth the short amount of time it will take to read it.
