As a teen cancer survivor, Melanie has seen a few good years with no evidence of disease and illness,  but in the back of her mind, she is always waiting for the other shoe to drop. Being a normal teenager is what she has always wanted, so when she’s offered a dream job at the Oasis Aquarium, she jumps at the chance.No one has told Melanie about the gorgeous Chase MaKenzie she is paired to be working with, nor the new best friend Kona, a dolphin  she’ll find in the watery depths. Melanie’s world is about to change forever. Heart touching, witty, and at times heartbreaking, Kona explores the depths of friendship, love and teen romance.
