Historical young adult fiction on the Storm of `38 by Olympic sailing superstar Longing to feel closer to his favorite grandfather, Oliver skips school on a sparkling September afternoon and hides out on a tired schooner. When he wakes up on the ways of his grandfather¿s boatyard and realizes he¿s been transported back to 1938, he must decide what to do before the dangerous hurricane he¿d been studying in school hits. While the main character is a 12-year old boy, Oliver¿s story, and the story of a powerful weather event, is more than appropriate for an adult audience. September 2009 marks the 71th anniversary of the storm.
