Editors Note While in the midst of a year-long sailing trip arranged by their father in the hopes of helping the boys come to terms with the loss of their mother, their father suddenly goes missing one evening--leaving brothers Ben, Dylan, and Gerry to fend for themselves in treacherous waters.
Annotation When his grief-stricken father uproots the family, selling everything and forcing them to live on a sailboat the year after his mother dies, 15-year-old Ben is angry and resentful. Cruising around the Bahamas with his brothers and father, he makes the best of it. But when their father disappears overboard one night, the boys must put aside their sadness and struggle to simply survive. A story of endurance, troubled family relationships, and great adventure, this is compelling young adult fare.
Editors Note 2 Ben, Dylan, and Gerry are still mourning their motherÂ's death when their dad decides to buy a boat and take them on a year-long sailing trip. Tensions flare between Ben and his father, but they gradually learn to live together in close quarters. But one morning, the boys wake up to discover their father has disappearedÂ?and they are lost. What happened to him? Where are they? And what will they do when a treacherous storm looms on the horizon? M. H. Herlong spins a gripping tale of adventure, survival, and the bonds of brotherhood in The Great Wide Sea.
