Just Keep Swimming
☀ Tʜᴇ Hᴇᴀᴛ-
Auden Caper would happily spend her summer in the recesses of her room.
When Auden’s lawyer prodigy mother suddenly gets a promotion into the high chair of said job, Auden decides ditch a lonely summer filled with textbooks and stale milk.
Packing her bags, she decides to go to sunny California, where her eccentric and scatter-brained Aunt Meredith lives.
Auden doesn’t do sun….or water for that matter. Born and raised in Portland, Auden begins to wonder what she’s gotten herself into.
With her happy go lucky Aunt there to guide her transition, Auden can’t seem to connect how her unorganized, bubbly aunt is related to her strict, disciplined mother.
What’s even worse is the fact that despite Fortuna Isle being a gorgeous place with water-colored skies and crystalline oceans, Auden doesn’t seem to fit in with her sun kissed, boisterous peers.
Because the fact of the matter is, when Auden tries to tan, she gets sunburned.
☀ Tʜᴇ Dʀᴏᴡɴɪɴɢ-
When Parker Prince quite literally finds her in a state of questionable sanity, Auden is suddenly introduced to the idea of spending her summer with a boy who 1) Never tucks in his shirt, 2) fluently speaks the language of sarcasm and 3) works at the aquarium (the best job in the world in his opinion).
The fact that he swims with sharks isn't the weirdest thing about him though. The thing about Parker Prince is that he believes in only one, absolute, truth-
You don’t drown. You Just Keep Swimming.
