For the bookshelf: Seaborn


By Craig Moodie (BA ’78)

Roaring Book Press, 2008


“I am seastruck—someone entranced by great and small waters alike,” reads the author’s note in Seaborn, a young-adult novel by Craig Moodie. After his mother abruptly moves out prior to the family’s annual sailing trip, 16-year-old Luke and his angry and confused father set out alone on the weeklong voyage. The routine journey becomes a fight for survival when an unexpected summer storm pulls Luke’s father overboard. Without anyone to rely on or any knowledge of his father’s condition, Luke must figure out how to navigate himself to safety.
