A shipwreck might end a dream of circumnavigating the globe. Not for the Wilcox family. To triumph, they must rebuild their boat on a remote Pacific island. Damage sustained on the reef and a lack of resources haunt them the rest of the way around the world as they face wild weather, pirates, gun boats, mines and thieves. Without a working engine or a way to communicate with the outside world, they struggle to reach home before their broken rig comes crashing down and they run out of food in a trial that tests them to their limits. It’s a skillfully-told story of tenacity and grit filled with glimpses of the fascinating cultures they encounter and enough levity to keep readers of all ages hooked to a suspenseful, satisfying ending. Don’t miss this Kirkus best book of the month pick.
Wendy Hinman is the award-winning author of Tightwads on the Loose, the story of her 34,000-mile seven-year voyage aboard a 31-foot boat with her husband, Garth Wilcox, the teenage hero of her new book, Sea Trials, which has garnered a Kirkus starred review and selection as a book of the month. She is also the editor of the Writers Connection, in which we interview successful writers about the craft of writing.
