Naila is a young girl who moves with her family to a new country and struggles to adapt to the new language and culture. Every day she goes to the beach and listens to her music to tune the world out, until one day she discovers a magical shell that sounds like home. Because of this she tries to call her friends to tell them about it, but they are still asleep in a different time zone. Because of this she tries to talk to another girl on the beach, but struggles with her English and feels like a failure. Because of this she doesn’t notice the shell fall out of her bag and get left behind on the beach. She discovers it’s missing but has to wait till morning to go back and get it. Until finally she runs back to the beach and sees that someone else has already found it - the girl from the day before. Together they discover that the shell can sing a new song they’ve never heard before - one that inspires fun and friendship. Ever since then, Naila, Skyler, and Samantha have become good friends and spend the rest of summer vacation exploring at the beach and looking for other amazing treasures.

The moral of the story is: you never know when something new is right around the corner.
