Young Japanese-American Suki is so excited she can hardly sit still. She and her parents are flying from Chicago to St. Simons Island near Georgia. For the first time in two years, Suki has left behind her invisible peacock, Best Friend. She is old enough, now, to spend her summer vacation without her constant companion. St. Simons Island is even more wonderful than Suki had imagined. Shimmering ocean waves lap the sandy beach outside the apartment. Fascinating birds with black spindly legs run through the wet sand. But Suki is lonely without Best Friend. Will she ever be able to find anyone to share her adventures? Award-winning author Joyce Blackburn wins the hearts of youngsters with her entertaining tale of a young girl discovering new friends and interests. Young listeners will learn gentle lessons of tolerance and self-confidence along with Suki as Christina Moore breathes life into her enchanting summer days.
