Details about The Great Big One by J.C. Geiger
The Great Big One by J.C. Geiger ePub PDF free download – The Pacific had given Clade City a gorgeous scribble of a whitesand beach, a lighthouse fine enough to stop your breath, and waves that drummed the shore like the world’s oldest song. The town clung to the sea the way a barnacle cleaves to a humpback’s belly, hanging windswept on the western edge of America with fisheries, state-ofthe-art research facilities, and seaside tourist shops. Their town existed because of the ocean; the ocean would destroy them. Every child in Clade City by about the age of six—old enough to read past the silent T in tsunami and pronounce evacuation—knew their days were numbered. It was the only reason Griffin Tripp agreed to hang the siren. “It’s beautiful,” his brother, Leo, said. “Just wait until you see it.” A siren was not the music Griff wanted to bring to his hometown. The ocean’s song was reminder enough. The distant tide sang through the brothers’ open bedroom window in brief, foggy summers, and raged on the battered jetties in winter. It whispered in the hollow mouths of shells in their mother’s Main Street collectibles shop, which, at dusk, reflected the lighthouse in its tall windows. The beam seemed to grow solid in the low drizzle and swung like a ghost ship’s golden boom, tacking in the wind.
