Summary (From the publisher):

Thirteen-year-old Rachel feels like she is having her childhood sucked away. Her parents are already setting her up to follow in their high-stress careers, with private schooling, a college degree and everything. Rachel doesn't want to grow up to become them, but it doesn't look like she has much of a choice. The only person who understands her is her grandfather, Clemen, who, despite tragedy in his own childhood, is very much a kid at heart. At her grandfather's birthday celebration, Rachel unexpectedly runs into another kindred spirit, a busboy named Colin who is at once dangerous, sympathetic and enigmatic. Now, they're heading out on a cruise, in honor of Clemen's birthday. Colin is giving her a choice: stay with the ship and be criticized endlessly by her parents, or take a chance and go for a swim with him. Grow up, or stay as she is... possibly forever?
