Sixteen-year-old Dain Harrington knows there is one thing heís good at, and thatís lobstering. Itís something he feels he can rely on, even though his father died in a storm at sea while fishing. During the summer before his senior year, Dain has good luck fishing his traps, until someone starts cutting them. Someone wants him off the water. And so begins a lobster war. Dain suspects Roger Gribbin, the local tough guy, who happens to be a friend of Dainís elusive brother, Eddie. Looking for advice and answers, Dain finally tracks Eddie down and asks him some pointed questions: Who is cutting his traps? Should he get off the water? Why is this happening to him? To Dainís shock and ultimate disappointment, Eddieís answers are evasive and unsettling. As heavy fog rolls in, the landscape that Dain knows so well seems less clear than before. He wonders if the same thing is happening with his life, especially with Eddie, who is drifting farther and farther away. A dramatic ocean rescue provides the moving climax to this eloquent first novel set on the rugged Maine coast.
