Inspired by Kristal Ambrose's journey of inspiration as an activist that led to her founding The Bahamas Plastic Movement, this book is about an ocean-loving young Bahamian girl named Kai (Ocean) who is inspired to bring an end to ocean plastic pollution after her best friend, a sea turtle named Gaia (Earth), becomes stuck at sea in a trash gyre. As Kai learns about the threats facing her marine friends, her determination and passion show the amazing potential of a single child to bring on incredible change. In this story, Kai and Gaia represent the joining of land and sea and the need to protect both environments.
