Review:
Thirteen-year-old Sophie, who is passionate about sailing, talks her way onto her uncle's sailboat as he, his two brothers, and a couple of nephews prepare to sail across the Atlantic to visit Grandfather in England. Though she is brave and resourceful, Sophie is haunted by fears. The frequently frightening trip gradually reveals these fears as true.

A prize-winning author takes us on a new voyage.
