Title: Good Vibrations

Following her mother’s drowning death, twelve-year old Tembi feels lost and crushed by her South LA  world.  As her fear of water becomes her obsession, she seizes on the dream of surfing as her escape but she must overcome systemic and cultural obstacles to make it happen. As any person of color can tell you, it’s not that simple. 70% of  black folks have little to no swim skills and their children are three times more likely to die by drowning than their white counterparts. Good Vibrations is a gritty coming-of-age story that’s about reaching beyond who you know yourself to be when everything’s falling apart around you.
