Suki could never have guessed all that she would experience while visiting St. Simons Island, Georgia. Until then, she had never flown in a plane, seen the ocean (except in pictures), set foot on an island, nor met a real scientist. From a fun and friendly woman named Cherry, Suki discovers the built-in clocks of nature. Because the clocks are so dependable, Suki becomes convinced that there is someone in full charge who makes everything work together. While Suki learns many scientific facts, her trip mostly teaches her about people, making and sharing friends.
