The book starts just before Christmas. 12 year old Sam and his family are getting ready to head off to Thailand for their Christmas holiday. For the first time ever, Sam's older sister Beth is staying home. She has commitments she can't break, which means that the family won't be together for their annual holiday get away.

Sam and his family have been going to Thailand for as long as Sam has been alive. They love the resort they stay at every year and they really feel at home with the Thai people. While Christmas Day is strange for them without Beth, the phone call home helps his mother and his father deal with the separation.

The next day, Sam and his dad plan to go snorkeling in the ocean. Just before they are about to head out to the ocean, they are stopped by a strange thing happening at the resort. As they look out, the ocean has pulled back a lot farther than it normally does.
