Description

Ashley Drummond is an elite swimmer. Clayton Sandalford is a talented artist. From the “moment of their first meeting, they were destined to be together.

Staying together, however, will test the limits of their love. A world-record swim, and the strange vision that accompanies it, raises questions about the couple's connection.

Then a life-altering incident triggers a mystical change, which will demand that both of them let go in ways never imagined.

Infinite Blue is a contemporary fairy tale about love and loss, flesh and water, the source of eternity, the lure of possibility and the belief that life is limitless when it's immersed in legend.

Editorial Reviews

&quotReaders who enjoy magical realism will revel in Infinite Blue's mystical themes. The narrative benefits from strong descriptive passages.&quot

— Resource Links

&quotAchingly beautiful and (infinitely) heartbreaking. Clay and Ash's connection filled me up from the very first page. I became their love and it left me with a wound that will not soon heal.&quot

— Sonali Dev, award-winning author of <i>A Bollywood Affair</i>

"I envy readers about to immerse themselves in Infinite Blue for the first time. The Groth brothers spin a tale as wondrous, surprising, mysterious, and magical as the ocean itself. The story of Ashley Drummond and Clayton Sandalford, two teens learning to release themselves to natural creative forces, is gorgeous and delightful and gets two enthusiastic thumbs-up from this water lover. Bravo!"

— Angie Abdou, author of <i>The Bone Cage</i>

"This novel occupies a space that I feel is lacking in good, quality literature…[and] it is simply a good story. This is a good first purchase for YA collections and libraries looking to add approachable teen titles. Infinite Blue feels new and fresh. It's like coming up for air. Highly Recommended"

— CM Magazine

"There is a lot to appreciate in this novel…The story moves along swiftly without ever feeling rushed, and readers will fall in love with Clayton's Finnish grandmother, Tuula…This is a book about passion, whether it involves the heat of young love or the cool of infinite water."

— Quill & Quire
