About the novel: The Highest Tide is a celebration of the Salish Sea and an exploration of young adulthood. When thirteen-year-old amateur marine biologist/Rachel Carson enthusiast Miles O’Malley finds a giant squid in the tide flats near his home at the southern tip of Puget Sound, it’s just the beginning of a summer that will change his life forever.
