THE TURN OF THE TIDE, by Rosanne Parry


The story: Jet nearly sank her family’s treasured sailboat. Kai ran instead of saving his grandparents. Now the cousins are spending the summer at Jet’s home in Oregon, trying to figure out how to deal with their shame, how to get along and (at least for Jet) how to win the Treasure Island Race just like their dads did years ago. But to do that, she’ll have to convince Kai to get in the water again: a tall order for a kid who’s just survived a killer wave while his grandparents drowned.


Mrs. Friend’s opinion: Enjoy the action-packed story at the same time as you learn a little about sailing.  Good for both boys and girls!
