Rosa, her mother, and abuela Mimi are doomed to love men who die at sea. Mom and Mimi anyway. We don't know about Rosa yet, but when she meets a boy with a boat, the town is concerned. The book is marketed as a Gilmore Girls-alike, and the small townishness, along with the brainy kid with the kooky mom are similar. The grandma is no Emily Gilmore, though; she's a bruja, and the one with the regular relationship with Rosa.
