My extraordinary summer with Tess Based on the bestseller by Anna Woltz

Afraid of being left alone as the youngest of the family, Sam begins his own made up aloneness training during his holiday on the Dutch island Terschelling. But by meeting the elusive Tess, who carries a big secret, he is drawn into an adventure that makes him realize that you should cherish your family instead of fleeing. Sam makes a drastic decision that puts his special friendship with Tess at risk and will change Tess' life forever.
