But his best friend, Maria, wants nothing more than to make a home in the desert, and Jake's mother encourages him to always play it safe.

Jake's life begins to outpace his small town's namesake, which doesn't make it any easier to come out to his mom, or Maria, or the world. But Jake is full of secrets, including the strange blue markings on his skin that low when in contact with water. What power will he find when he searches for his identity, and will he turn his back to the current or dive head first into the waves?"--Back cover.
