Coastal waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands are home to fish and to dreams to 13-year-old Mikey Donovan and his beloved stepfather, Bill, a charter boat skipper. In a story of love, conscience, and honor called into question, Mikey does battle with complex ethical issues that ride in on the wave of adolescence. Robert Ramirez, whose versatile talent has enlivened other acclaimed audiobooks, breathes additional tension into this riveting psychological adventure. Ramirez's Hispanic accent lends a welcome exotic feel to his reading of the Hawaiian characters despite the cultural mismatch, and he ably handles the crude and uncooperative day fishers who rent the Crystal-C and accompany Mikey and Bill in pursuit of record-breaking fish. Guaranteed to satisfy adventure-loving listeners! T.B. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
