From humorist, storyteller, author, and the voice of Motel 6
commercials, here is an exciting middle-grade adventure novel set in rural
Alaska. Ivan and September Crane, ages 12 and 13, are left alone for a couple
of weeks while their fisherman Dad is away at sea. In typical adolescent
fashion, they quickly proceed to ignore his only two instructions–don't run
down the batteries on the portable short-wave radio, their only means of
communication, and don't cross the bay to town. Through a series of bad
decisions they find themselves crossing Bag Bay in their skiff when they are
suddenly overtaken by a sudden and fierce autumn storm known as a williwaw.
Ivan and September must use every ounce of strength, courage, and ingenuity
they possess to keep themselves afloat until help comes. Williwaw contains rich
descriptions of Alaskan geography and wildlife. Its likable characters and taut
suspense will keep readers riveted until the last page.
