Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In Kessler's (the Emily Windsnap series) seaswept novel, a mysterious disappearance leads 13-year-old Mia to uncover a long-held family secret. When Mia's grandfather suddenly goes missing, she grudgingly gives up time with her friends to accompany her mother to her grandparents' fishing village hometown, so they can help Mia's grandmother. Mia resigns herself to boring, gloomy days in Porthaven with no cell phone or Internet connection. But when she happens upon an abandoned fishing boat-and a secret diary tucked inside-she embarks on a time-bending journey. As days pass, Mia exchanges notes with the diary's owner, a girl named Dee; what Mia doesn't realize is that her notes are traveling back in time 50 years. Kessler uses this device to explore Porthaven's history, while untangling the reasons behind Grandad's disappearance and the magic that sets the events of the story in motion. Despite some murky logic, the plucky fantasy-adventure hums along with genuine contemporary characters at the helm. Ages 9-12. Agent: Catherine Clarke, Felicity Brian Literary Agency.

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-8-Mia is ready to spend her spring break relaxing at home with friends-until her grandfather abruptly disappears. With no choice but to travel with her mother to the lethargic seaside village of Porthaven to assist in the search, the 13-year-old is understandably upset about her disrupted plans. While walking her grandmother's dog on the beach one morning, she discovers an abandoned boat with a diary in the locker that seems to be written by a girl named "D." Mia is convinced that D sounds just like the friend she longs for, so she writes a note in the diary, and a correspondence ensues. When D fails to meet her at their agreed upon time, Mia and her new friend, Peter, set out to find her, but Mia is ordered home by her mother. Peter promises not to go alone, but then he disappears, and when she and his sister try to find him, they learn that D's island was destroyed 50 years ago during a storm. Kessler's story swells and builds at a fast pace, seemingly out of nowhere-just like a storm at sea often does. Elements of time travel make this complex page-turner tricky to follow at times; the reward comes at the end when all is explained. A thought-provoking adventure.-Lisa Kropp, Suffolk Cooperative Library System, Bellport, NYα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
