Here is just one little exerpt from the book to whet your appetite:
"I would be mesmerized by the busy reef-dwelling critters as they darted in and out of the oyster reef crevices.  Thousands of translucent shrimp, only an inch in size, would perch on and between the oyster shells.  Thin naked goby fish would peek out from between the oysters with their glimmering, green eyes and faces that look like they're smiling."
~ I Wish by Laurie Sorabella
