A fast-paced young adult novel about four very different teens lost at sea with no one to count on but themselves.

Matt and John are best friends, working-class guys trying to earn some money in Montauk for the summer. When they meet Driana, JoJo, and Stef, three friends who live a much different life of priviledge, Matt and John find themselves in a sticky situation where temptation rivals sensability.

Worlds collide when the group ventures out to sea aboard a small boat that Stef sneaks out from her dad's dock. As the waves rise and the fragil vessel weakens, things go horribly wrong. Adrift at sea for days, who will have what it takes to survive?
