Just when she thinks she has fixed the problems in her life, the wishing stone leads her to a mysterious rift in the ocean floor and she is transported through time to see what effect her decisions have on her future self. Each time Emily travels through the tides of time, something always goes wrong to cause her future to be less than ideal. Emily must find the correct formula to ensure the best possible future for both herself and her friends and family. This book introduces the importance of recycling and keeping our oceans clean.
