Its summer in California, and Elle is spending her days at the beach with Hunter, learning to surf (and perfecting her blond highlights.) With everything going so well, Elle is surprised when she discovers that life at the beach isnt as perfect as it seems. Someone is polluting the water and hurting the seals that live there. The animal-loving Elle knows she has to do something. With some sly manicure maneuvers, Elle devises a plan to save the seals and prove that there is more to beach blondes than people think.
