        Sienna Jones has had a hard time dealing with the loss of her mother three years ago in a plane crash over the Indian Ocean.  Nightmares and fears of the ocean and planes haunt her.  So when her father asks Sienna to join his internarional relief team for two weeks of her summer vacation to help tsunami orphans cope with their losses, she thinks he must be kidding, or crazy, or both.  But wanting to help wins out over her fears, and she makes the long and frightening trek to Indonesia.
        What she finds there is the most handsom boy she's ever seen-Deni.  He's mysterious and brooding.  Everything about him and the way Sienna feels about him is intense.  Their connection is instant and true, so when he hears word that his father may have survived the awful tsunami after all, Sienna doesn't hesitate to run away with him to the epicenter of the tsunami disaster.  She knows about the kind of hope that's driving Deni, and she wants to see him through whatever he'll find back home.  She knows the're taking a huge risk, but she doesn't expect what they find might break both their hearts...
