Following The Rules --an unspoken list of dos and don'ts--Nani makes contact with Rox, the leader of the lineup. Through a harrowing series of initiations, Nani t only gets accepted into the lineup, she gains the attention of surf god, Nigel McBride. But maintaining stardom is harder than achieving it. Nani is keeping several secrets that, if revealed, could ruin everything she's worked so hard to achieve. Secret #1: She's stolen her dad's ashes and hidden them from her mom.
