The Young Man and the Sea

Author: Rodman Philbrick

  • AGES 10 - 13 
  • Genre Adventure
This starkly dramatic yet poignant novel takes readers on an exciting journey with 12-year-old Skiff Beaman, a determined boy from a small Maine town. Skiff's mom died recently, and his fisherman dad won't get off the TV couch to do anything but get another beer, so these days Skiff has to take care of everything himself. When their boat sinks, Skiff discovers it will cost thousands to buy her a new engine. Skiff's lobster traps won't earn him enough, but there are bigger fish in the sea — bluefin tuna. If he can catch one, he just might save the boat — and get his family back on its feet again.
