Holly Goldberg Sloan I have made a living as a writer since I was in my early twenties. I've worked in film and television. Family entertainment. I've put words in the mouths of angels and elephants–soccer players and crocodile hunters.
But nothing has been as fulfilling as writing my book.
I believe that what we experience as we go through life—the incidents and actions, people and places—the small bits and the big pieces—are determinative. I wouldn't call it fate. And I wouldn't call it chance. For me it's something squishy in between

Avery Bloom, who’s bookish, intense, and afraid of many things, particularly deep water, lives in New York City. Bett Devlin, who’s fearless, outgoing, and loves all animals as well as the ocean, lives in California. What they have in common is that they are both twelve years old, and are both being raised by single, gay dads.
When their dads fall in love, Bett and Avery are sent, against their will, to the same sleepaway camp. Their dads hope that they will find common ground and become friends–and possibly, one day, even sisters.
But things soon go off the rails for the girls (and for their dads too), and they find themselves on a summer adventure that neither of them could have predicted. Now that they can’t imagine life without each other, will the two girls (who sometimes call themselves Night Owl and Dogfish) figure out a way to be a family?
