Hailey and Claire are spending their last summer together at the Capri beach club. Later in the last week of summer at the club at night they have a really bad storm. The next day when Claire and Hailey wake up happy and early on a sunny day, as soon as they looked outside their faces went down. They saw trees on the ground and the lifeguard chair on the sand and roofs were ripped off the houses. Later that day, at the Capri Beach Club, they saw something shinning in the water. They thought it was there imagination because the thing in the water was talking! Hailey and Clair are discovering that life can take an unpredictable course, friendship is forever, and magic can be found in the most unpredictable places.
