Whether she's spying on tide-pool creatures or splash-crashing through waves on her boogie board, there's no place ten-year-old Kailey loves more than the ocean. She and her best friend Tess feel totally lucky when they find out a resort-mall-movie multi-plex is "Coming Soon!" to their beach. TWELVE movie theaters. Cool shops. A snack bar. Maybe even bathrooms! Then Kailey learns the whole truth: developers plan to haul away the rocky tide pools to make a smooth, sandy beach for tourists. Messing with a whole tide pool universe, and all the creatures who live there, is just plain NOT OKAY. Kailey's got a great idea, but she's never tried anything like it before. If she can believe in herself and make it work, there might be hope for the tide pools yet.
