Small boy, small boat, big dreams, big fish. If twelve-year-old Skiff Beaman can hook a valuable bluefin tuna, he’ll have the money to repair his father’s fishing boat and get his family back on their feet-and not just financially. Depression over the death of Skiff’s mother has left Skiff’s father a couch-bound alcoholic. Skiff is determined to help his dad and honor the promise he made to his mother.
