Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-- Upon investigating a light on nearby Little Hog Island, Denny finds a secretive elderly man who is restoring an old boat and strikes up a friendship with him. The timing is opportune, as she had been at odds with her mother since their move to Maine after her father's death. Grudgingly, the old man allows her to help refurbish the boat and begins to serve as a reluctant grandfather figure to the teenager. When a robbery lands him in the hospital, and the daughter who has been searching for him is located, it's revealed that ``Mr. Jones'' is running away from cancer surgery and dreams of taking the Misty Day to a spot in the Bermuda Triangle. With a friend's help, Denny sneaks him out of the hospital and he sails off to follow his dream. Koller's description of the work on the boat is nicely integrated into the story, but Denny's sudden outbursts and overblown emotional shifts, along with occasionally trite dialogue, may try readers' patience. And while the mystery of Mr. Jones's true identity will pull teens along, the fatal disease and escape from the hospital conclusion is an obvious one that has been done before. --Susan Knorr, Milwaukee Public Library -
