Eleven interlinked stories tell the tale of Sonny Mendoza--a boy coming of age in a Hawaiian fishing village. Sonny is a little different from the rest of the men in his family--not as brave, perhaps too sensitive. What do you do if your biggest fear surrounds you? Indeed, what if that which you fear brings life (and death) to those you love? It's the sea itself that fills Sonny with dread. In wrestling with its powerful force, though, he just might reach the doorway to adulthood. Graham Salisbury's luscious, well-crafted prose will haunt and delight the mind long after the last page is turned.From the Publisher:
Sonny Mendoza and his cousin grow up in a Hawaiian fishing village. It is a world of beauty, family, love, and of danger and tragedy. Mendoza men must be brave, but Sonny's courage is different. He can't love and trust the water as the other men in his family do.
