This is a memoir of mermaids, boat arrests, working girls, and uncharted islands; of a girl forced to navigate survival and adventure while raised by her father on a thirty-foot sailboat circumnavigating the world; of sifting through what is presented to you in childhood, expected of you in society, and finding your true self and desires in the process.
