In the novel The Cay, a young white boy and an old black man are stranded on a small sandy cay in the Caribbean Sea following a shipwreck. Eleven-year-old Phillip was blinded by flying debris when a torpedo struck the SS Hato, and old Timothy has taught him how to survive. This prequel-sequel tells the rest of their tale in alternating chapters--the compelling story of two very different people who share the courage and tenacity to turn their dreams into reality.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lars Guthrie | 2/3/2014

    " Loved this, especially the synoptic and episodic overview of Timothy's life. It made "The Cay" so much richer, and made me wish that teachers would assign the books together. My highest recommendation. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 12/29/2013

    " This was a great follow up of the first book. I loved how the stories of the two main characters were continued and Timothy's childhood was filled in. Phillipe has to have surgery on his eyes and that is always hard. "

    " Taylor did a great job of writing this prequel/sequel after such a long period of time between the first book. Both story lines were interesting. It made me want to travel more throughout the Caribbean and also to appreciate my sight and that I have never had to have a major operation. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bridget | 12/10/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diana | 10/12/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katy | 10/12/2013

    " A great prequel/sequel to the award winning novel The Cay. It tells you what happens to Phillip after he is resqued and what Timothy goes through before he boards The Hato. Foreveryone who read The Cay the is a must have! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 8/27/2013

    " Pretty Good... only because my social studies teacher read it to us and even did Timothy's accent and it was good because she's from New York! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clare | 8/16/2013

    " This is a wonderful book about the misconceptions that are formed by prejudice and how shared hardships and a burgeoning friendship helps to push those preconceived ideas aside. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kris | 7/20/2013

    " I believe I liked this one better than The Cay. Although I think it works best to read them both. It was wonderful to find out about Timothy's childhood and the parallel story with Phillip's recovery. Perfect. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mer387675 | 7/12/2013

    " Pretty good, not my type of book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 5/14/2013

    " The Cay was magical, and Timothy of the Cay just didn't measure up. The flashing from character to character didn't work for me, because I didn't see any parallels or symbolism from one storyline to the other. It ended up disjointed and unsatisfying. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rammeet | 5/10/2013

    " I learned it is hard to survive in a island if u are alone ,but a stranger who u dont even know. "
