Engaging characters, careful plotting-and a sense of humor. Waterproof is a modern coming of age story for two young people in a detailed, convincing setting that makes the flashbacks plausible. Is it a romance? Mildly. Is it a pirate story carried into a modern setting? Very Much. Villains? Absolutely. Salty Characters? You bet!
