SEA, a Northern California Book of the Year finalist, Summer 2010 Indie Next Pick, Goodreads "Mover and Shaker" is Kling's debut novel following the bittersweet adventure of 15-year-old Sienna Jones to 2004 post-tsunami Indonesia.

BOOKLIST says, “Kling blends facts about Indonesian culture and the wake of the tsunami with a lyrical story of loss and daring to love again... Sienna’s loss, newfound courage and eventual acceptance of the changes in her life ring true in the satisfying and wholly believable first-person narrative."

VOYA says, "Kling captures the innocence and heartbreak of first romance superbly in this tender love story...this page turner evokes the harshness of disaster as well as the beauty of the young soul."
