Let's talk books!

Recently widowed Tova loves her night job cleaning at the Sowell Bay Aquarium, especially because of her fondness for Marcellus, a giant Pacific octopus. Working there makes her feel closer to her son, who disappeared at sea when he was 18. After suffering an injury at work, Tova becomes friends with her replacement, Cameron, a failed rock musician in town to track down a father he never knew. Shelby Van Pelt’s novel is a heartwarming and unconventional tale of friendship between a widow, a young man, and an octopus.
