Summary
Off the coast of the small California town of Orilla del Cielo, the silhouettes of oil rigs loom. To Zach, they are a reminder of loss-- his father, an oil worker, drowned years earlier. With his family struggling to make ends meet, Zach feels he's destined for the same bleak future. Then he meets Vanessa, an optimistic girl from a wealthy family whose sights are literally set on the stars. Inspired by her idol, Carl Sagan, she plans on studying astronomy at Cornell. But as oil prospectors in search of black gold know, the future is uncertain... and fortunes can always be flipped. --
Summary
Coming of age in a small California oil town where his father died in an accident years earlier, Zach evaluates bleak prospects before meeting a girl who aspires to follow in the footsteps of her idol, Carl Sagan, to study astronomy at an Ivy League school.
