Nita's mother is dying. Maybe that's why Nita is testing fate and her own limits by swimming or sailing too far from the shore.

Molly is the shy, inhibited one. She's Nita's best friend, and she's the one who knows how to sail.

Eddie is the outsider, who finds Nita mysterious and beautiful.

Life Belts

Nita, Molly, and Eddie are all thirteen, and each of them has a story to tell of what happens to them in their Long Island beach town on those last hot, bright days of summer, those few days when tragedy strikes and changes their lives forever.
