The King of Pawleys

When ten-year-old Peter arrives at the beach for his weeklong vacation, he pretty much knows what to expect.

But that routine is shattered in a flash when he witnesses a brutal fight in the middle of his first night there. Before he knows it, Peter is swept into a wild adventure that will test everything he thought he knew about this tiny coastal town as he races to discover who caused the fight...before the bad guy strikes again!
