Reading Level: Ages 10-13
When 12-year-old Sam's father gave him his very own fishing boat, it came with rules. He had to wear a life jacket. He had to drive his boat carefully. And he was to stay on the Pascagoula River. But when Sam's school year ends with him being badly beaten by bullies, Sam feels the need to prove his courage. So he breaks his father's rule and steers his boat into the dangerous waterways of the nearby bayou where he finds a half-wild boy living in an abandoned fishing shack. The desperate boy begs Sam to keep him a secret. That promise launches Sam into a dangerous adventure...one that may cost him his life.
