I loved this book at first, but then struggled through a few chapters in the middle. Nicole and Grant loved it! It ended differently than we would have thought, but it was fun to speculate. This would be a great book for an in-depth study (especially on sea animals and boats). The author's note at the end told about the real-life person that inspired this book. I wish we had known that from the beginning.
