ALA Book Award winner Graham Salisbury writes dramatic stories for young adult readers. One of the most critically acclaimed books of 2001, Lord of the Deep is a vivid fishing adventure that takes place off of the great blue island of Hawaii. Since Bill married Mikey's mom, Mikey's life has become truly incredible. At age 13, Mikey is the youngest deckhand on the whole island, working hard on Bill's deep-sea charter fishing boat. It's his second week out on the boat, and he's busy trying to prove himself to both Bill and the disrespectful charter guests. But after making a mistake at a crucial moment, Mikey begins to feel more and more alone. Mikey's admiration for Bill compels him to take a stand for personal integrity and the truth--a decision that fills him with both regret for his actions and a deep appreciation for Bill. With narrator Robert Ramirez's enjoyable reading, listeners are in for a hot and sunny day on the boat. Download and start listening now!

    " A YA book set in Hawaii about a boy helping his stepdad on his charter-fishing boat. Interesting in an "Old Man & the Sea" way, but with way more action. ;-) On a deeper level, it's about knowing the right thing to do, and about honor. Very short. "

About the Narrator

Robert Ramirez came to audiobook narration fresh from his MFA in classical theater. Initially answering a casting call for a narrator who spoke Spanish, Robert has used his Mexican-American background to imbue authentic flavor and dialogue in audio titles. His success with six young adult novels by Gary Soto has gotten our attention, including Taking Sides and Buried Onion. His powerful command of language and rich voice reflect his interest in dialects. In his recent performance of Beast by Donna Jo Napoli, a modern fable of “Beauty and the Beast” set in Persia, Robert jumped at the chance to add Farsi and Arabic to his repertoire. We hope to hear Robert in different audiobook venues in coming months.
