Tired of your backpack smooshing your lunch every day? Are you out of pencil lead yet again? Wondering if the class clock has stopped, and you were supposed to be out of school an hour ago?
Then maybe you need a relaxing book. Here it is!
If you could live anywhere in America, Sandport might be your town.
Imagine going to school in the perfect California beach town. It's a place with no stoplights, cool afternoon breezes, and a sheep dog with a plan. The students are intelligent, comical, and have the same spunky soul that got the pioneers across the West. These kids work well together and treat everyone with respect, the way their parents taught them. You would definitely invite all these kids to your next birthday party.
Seven of the kids hang-out after school at the tide pools, doing homework and playing on the beach. They even have their own club, where they discuss school topics and work on surf techniques. The Tide Pool Club thrives on inventing creative ways to solve problems, especially a big one for a new friend.
Logan Lincoln will guide you through the school year countdown, including golf cart dads, a spry grandma, and their town joke no one knows about. Shh... it's a secret.
Read on to find the meaning of life, a talent show to remember, and why their teacher keeps his desk drawer locked.
Welcome to Sandport!
