The Ground Is My Ocean (Paperback)
All he wants is to be a normal teenager. But when a car accident shatters his life, Dylan finds salvation in the most unlikely of places.
When a car wreck leaves sixteen-year-old Dylan with one leg, suddenly everyone in his life treats him differently. His girlfriend dumps him, his parents want to wrap him in cotton wool and the jocks at his new school see him as an easy target.
As he struggles to come to terms with what's happened, curiosity (and a humiliating schoolyard fight) lead him through the doors of a local MMA gym where he runs into Santana, a tough, Latina fighter with her own unique set of challenges.
With Santana as a reluctant mentor, Dylan begins training Brazilian jiujitsu, a full contact martial art that makes learning to walk again seem easy by comparison. With his body bruised and his ego dented, Dylan finds himself pushed to the edge, not just physically, but also emotionally.
Can Dylan stay the course and find the courage and determination to change not just how the world sees him, but how he sees himself?
A story about grit, resilience and the power of friendship from the bestselling, award-winning author of the Ryan Lock thriller series, Sean Black.
