My guest is the author of the novel "Of Fish and Friends: Swimming Thirty Miles an Hour with a Boy in a Patchwork Tailcoat".  She's part of the founding chapter of Heirs to Our Oceans, a global movement of youth taking the ocean crisis into their own hands by educating themselves and others and processing and advocating for solutions, and she is 14 years old.
