Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Jonah is a thirteen-year-old boy who has a secret and has to lie to cover it up. While staying at his uncle's house for part of the summer, Jonah gets his sister to help him cover his secret, which leads to more lying. Readers will be interested to find out how Jonah keeps his secret from his uncle. Jonah finds a bizarre friendship in a crusty old marina owner who ends up helping him in an unusual way. Find out how this young boy discovers that an adventure at the marina helps him to uncover an old fear that he is hiding. A young college girl helps him realize that friendship and caring can overpower any fear. Jonah learns that lying does have its price to pay. In the end, Jonah finds out that the summer adventure is something worth writing about. This fun, adventurous book will keep the reader turning pages to find out what is happening. Readers will learn about the sea, boats, and the life around this small Rhode Island town. 2006, Peachtree Publishers, Ages 10 to 14.

Gr 4-8-Jonah's vacation at Uncle Nate's beach cabin is threatened when his younger sister, Jaye, discovers that he not only failed seventh-grade English, but also that he intercepted the letter informing their parents before they departed for Europe. Jaye agrees to keep the secret if Jonah lets her take his place on the local swim team, even if it means lying about her age. While their uncle is preoccupied with writing a novel, Jonah gravitates to a local marina, where he meets Bert, the grumpy shop owner, and begins doing odd jobs as payback for damaging a boat motor. Happy to be up to his elbows in grease, the mechanically inclined teen puts his academic troubles on the back burner. He also assists a pretty college student researching coexistent species in the nearby waters, and mishaps plague the pair. When she goes out alone and becomes stranded in a storm, Jonah responds in a climactic rescue. He confesses his problems to Uncle Nate, who encourages him to write a story about the summer's happenings for his teacher. Realistic details about marine biology research and boat motor mechanics are engaging, and reluctant readers, especially boys, will identify with Jonah. Add this title to survival/adventure collections.-Vicki Reutter, Cazenovia High School, NY Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
