It is about a 13-year old named Brady who leads a normal life as a working kid fishing for crabs when a new family, who is quite well off comes into the neighborhood. Tragedy strikes when their red kayak turns over in the bay and causes a tragic accident. Brady, who is on the rescue team and friendly with the family, investigates the cause of the accident, and he doesn't like what he finds.
This book is full of suspense and will keep you hooked from page 1 through the end of the story. It is a very interesting book and I think I would recommend it for people ages 10 and up. I give it four and a half out of 5 stars. It is a must read.
This book captures your attention from beginning to end with vivid descriptions and unexpected happenings. From the beginning, when the kayak is seen traveling down the street on top of a sports car, to the death of a young boy, and to the end when Brady discovers the truth behind the sunken kayak, the story grabs your attention. Brady is faced with one of the biggest decisions of his life.
I would highly recommend this book to any young readers, age 9 and up, because the reader can really relate to the many emotions and struggles of the characters. It is a quick and easy read with lots of suspense and life lessons. Even though the book is fictional, the author does a great job of making the story seem realistic.
This book was recommended to me by my school librarian, and while she was telling how good this book was I was thinking "I don't know, the cover doesn't look appealing" but "Never judge a book by its cover" was ringing in my ears, so I decided to buy it, it was pretty cheap.
I got home and started reading the book. For some reason I didn't want to like it. I wanted to prove a book could be based on its cover. I got midway through the book before it was lunchtime and I just kept wondering what was going to happen.
When I finished the book I was disappointed in a good way about the ending. It isn't a bad ending, it is just an open one were you are left to imagine what would happen. I would have liked an epilogue... I am not saying the book is bad because of the ending, if anything it is the opposite. It lets you ponder about what would happen if... and what would have happened if....
I really hope the author writes a sequel to the book to answer unanswered questions about the ending.
Don't buy this book if you are expecting a happy ever after story!
