Port Winston, Texas--home to sun, sand, and shopping. What's not to like? Everything, to 14 year-old Elizabeth Barker. It's the middle of 9th grade and Dad's uprooted the family, returning to his Gulf coast hometown. A once-bustling fishing community, Port Winston is pushing every boundary, vying to be the state's premier tourist destination. A far cry from quiet, Coulter City, Missouri where Elizabeth used to be somebody and family meant something a whole lot different. Between Mom's story assignment in Mexico, Dad's 14-hour workdays and weekends minding Grandpa at the docks, their once close-knit life is in shreds. 
Taunted as the newbie camera geek at school, Elizabeth's given up trying to fit in.When Grandpa, who's got more judgments than the Old Testament, pronounces her 10¢ shy of worthless and headed for trouble, Elizabeth bolts for Wayward Landing beach--the county's last wild haven. Her impulsive defense of an endangered, nesting sea turtle against a trio of bullies ignites new purpose, a challenging friendship, and troubles even Grandpa couldn't predict.

Her fight to save the Landing for the turtles unearths complex family ties to the powerful developer and a long-buried tragedy. When the Deepwater Horizon oil slick threatens the Louisiana coast and the turtles' feeding grounds, Elizabeth's journalist mom hits the front lines. And Elizabeth's fears and plans hit overdrive.

Elizabeth's Landing--a compelling environmental and family saga, bridges risk and loss with hope and hearts--human to human, human to animal, human to world.

A portion of book sale profits supports sea turtle conservation and education programs.

About the Author:

Former Executive Director of the Yolo County, CA Resource Conservation District, Katy Pye lives and writes on California's North Coast. Elizabeth’s Landing is her first novel. She volunteers for the Mendocino Coast Writers Conference and at the Point Cabrillo Light Station. Camera in hand, her daily walks along the ocean or redwood forest trails provide inspiration and entertainment. Known to talk to local tree frogs, hummingbirds, turkeys, and sometimes coyotes, she is delighted, yet not surprised, when they talk back. Katy's website and blog have more about sea turtles and young people making a difference in all sorts of ways. You can reach her through the site’s CONTACT ME page. http://katypye.com Facebook Fan page: Katy Pye-Author YouTube: Katy Pye-Author
