"Steeped in atmosphere and rich in detail, this adventure captures the salt in the air as well as the omnipresent ticking deadline." -- Publishers Weekly When his dad goes missing in a fishing-boat accident, fourteen-year-old Jake refuses to think he may have lost his father forever. But forever or not, it's up to Jake to pay the loan sharks threatening to repossess his family's diner. Scrabbling out a living as a quahogger isn't easy in Narragansett Bay, but with the help of some local clammers, Jake's determination and hard work may just be enough to save the family business.
