When Tegan loses her best friend to a car accident in the middle of winter, her life completely halts. How can she even consider moving on, when Elva has been with her at every moment since second grade? And with Hunter, Elva's brother, still in the hospital, barely waking from a coma and facing months of grueling physical therapy, Tegan is stuck in the middle. Focus on her own grief, or dedicate herself to keeping Hunter from falling apart? After six months, when summer comes around, Tegan is finally ready to face reality. In an attempt to give them both closure, Tegan plans a two week road trip to visit all of Elva's bucket list locations and spread her ashes everywhere. But with Hunter mute by choice, and silence being their sole companion, Tegan finds that this trip isn't what she planned. Take Me to the Sea is a story about friendship, loss, and answering the unanswerable question of "how do I move on?"
