Main character, Kelcie, who's 10, wants to find out what happened to her dad who disappeared while lobstering eight years earlier.

A storm, a dangerous climb, and a rescue take place on Kelcie's quest to find answers.
This is an easy read and only 86 pages. I think your 8-12 year olds will enjoy this adventure. Stay tuned to the next review in this series.
