The hard knocks of life keep piling up for Eje. Born into a
country on the brink of civil war, he knows the real meaning
of survival. After a decade living in Canada, things arenâ€™t
getting any easier but if he can keep his head down for his
last year of high school he thinks there might be an out for
him from his poverty-stricken neighborhood. Too bad fate
likes to throw fastballs at Eje and heâ€™s forced into an
afterschool paddling program. The Aquatic club is filled
with white kids, who like to run for fun and paddle for
performance. Eje has talent but liking paddling doesnâ€™t mean
much when youâ€™re another kid from the projects.
Shannon used to live to paddle. After a drunk driver crashed
into the car holding her and her mother, life has been
anything but normal. Re-learning how to kayak isnâ€™t fun, and
trying to find out where she stands with her once BFFâ€™s at
the club reinforces how much has changed. Before the
accident sheâ€™d never give a newbie paddler the time of day,
but the minute she meets Eje all that changes. Unlike the
guys at the club Ejeâ€™s mysterious without trying.
When ultimatums threaten to end the afterschool paddle
program and secrets get revealed will Eje and Shannon forget
their friendship for the good of others or trust each other
to do right? Two teens with little in common tackle
prejudice and stereotypes to risk it all to help each other.
