Joy Nicholson's The Tribes of Palos Verdes is a
Los Angeles Times bestseller and now a major motion
picture starring Jennifer Garner, Maika Monroe, and Cody Fern.
“Nicholson captures the California-coast culture. . . .
Medina shows what it’s like to feel ‘six million years old’
way before your time."—Entertainment Weekly
“Impressive . . . Captures what it is to be young,
intelligent, and very alone.”—Us Weekly
“Nicholson’s evocation of character, her ability to bring
Medina fully to life, makes this work. She writes with
snapshot immediacy. . . . A writer to keep in mind.”—David
Medina Mason is a defiant, awkward fourteen-year-old living
in the affluent beach community of Palos Verdes, California.
The pressure is intense in their high-stakes world, and
Medina’s family begins to break under the stress. Her
parents’ marriage disintegrates and her beloved brother
turns to drugs in order to cope. Medina turns to the ocean
to escape it all. She surfs to survive, finding a bitter
solace in the rough comfort of the waves.
“An inspiring portrait of a young woman unswayed by other
people’s pettiness” (Mademoiselle), this is the
moving story of growing up “different,” of the love between
siblings, and of one girl’s power to save herself
