The Great Wide Sea by M.H. Herlong
I read the Great Wide Sea. This book is about a boy, his two brothers, and his dad. In the beginning of the book, you learn how the boy’s mom dies. His dad is very upset, and doesn’t know what to do. One day while the boy and his brothers are at school their dad sells their house and buys a boat. He tells the boys that they are going on a trip on a boat for a year. While they on on the trip that dad leaves in the middle of the night. when the boys wake up and find their dad gone and the life emergency kit missing they start to worry. I won’t tell any more because i don’t want to ruin the end. I would recommend it to anyone who just wants to cry or read a sad story. I give this book a five.
