Publisher Description

Tony has saved $300, enough to buy a small sailboat. He will use it every day during his three-week stay with his grandmother on the Connecticut shore. Once Tony learns to sail, he starts exploring the waters around a group of tiny islands offshore. One day, he sees two people in diving gear on a motorboat. But instead of greeting him, they wave him away. The next time he sees them, he discovers that they will do anything to hide what they have found. He is chased, and his boat is stolen. Now, lost and alone, with night falling fast, Tony wonders if he will ever get back to his grandmother’s—and safety—again. Avi is the author of dozens of books for children, including the Newbery Honor Book The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle. In Windcatcher, he crafts a story crackling with excitement and danger. It is sure to capture the attention of even the most reluctant reader, especially with Audie Award-winner George Guidall’s narration.
