‘Fish Out Of Water’ by M.M. Ramey

A few weeks before his eighteenth birthday Zeke struggles with what he wants to do with his life post-high school. While taking a walk along Jersey Shore, the pop culture obsessed teen has a run in with the smooth talking, charming Charlie Scott. The thirty-year old takes Zeke under his wing and introduces him to his friends Elwood (a former high school football star) and Nate (recently divorced former Marine). Charlie using his influence convinces them to take Nate’s recently acquired boat on a cross country road trip to Hawaii. Zeke feeling like this is something he needs to take part in, runs away from home after his Mother says no. The trip changes when they pick up the hitchhiking free spirited Gilly who Zeke quickly becomes head over heels for. The story crosses multiple genres in a Cameron Crowe-esque tale. The group along with Nate’s elderly dog Eddie, the trip takes drastic twists and turns as each of them are forced to deal with the problems they’re running from; especially the seemingly immortal Charlie whose past quickly catches up with him. From a Blues musician in Chicago to a psychotic drug lord in Mexico, Zeke learns what it means to be an adult.
