Gone to Drift tells the story of a 12-year-old Jamaican boy, Lloyd, and his search for his beloved grandfather, Maas Conrad, a fisherman who is lost at sea. Lloyd suspects that his grandfather has witnessed an illegal capture of dolphins for the tourist trade and that he has come to harm. Interspersed with Lloyd's quest on land and sea is a second voice - of Maas Conrad himself, who, unknown to Lloyd is alive; marooned on a rock, he describes his life growing up in a rural fishing village in a long-gone era. Gone to Drift is an exciting adventure story about a boy confronted with difficult moral choices.

Huracan was also shortlisted for the 2014 Saroyan Prize.Gone to Drift, which was placed second in the 2015 Burt Prize for Caribbean Literature, is McCaulay's first Young Adult novel. It is built on McCaulay's 2012 Regional Commonwealth prize-winning short story, The Dolphin Catchers. Founder and long-time CEO of the Jamaica Environment Trust, McCaulay entices her readers with the spirit and complexity of contemporary Jamaica.

Review:

“McCaulay’s prose is lyrical. A solemn adventure about resolve, loyalty, and family, that gives readers insight into life in a small fishing community and brings to light the dangers marine life face in the wild.” (School Library Journal)

“The relationships between boy and elder, man and sea, crime and poverty all lift McCaulay’s first children’s novel into a different league. Beautiful.” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

Life gets even tougher for Lloyd, a boy from a fishing village, when his grandfather goes missing at sea - gone to drift as the local fishers say.
