I liked this book a lot. This book inspired me that just because I hang out with the opposite skin color does't mean anything. This story focuses on a boy named Phillip Enright. He moves with his mom by a ship (The Hato) and it gets torpedoed. He meets this man named Timothy who is the opposite skin tone of Phillip. Timothy helps Phillip survive on a small cay. Timothy ends up dying by a hurricane. At the end of the book, Phillip regains his sight after going under 3 operations. I can relate to Phillip because he doesn't want to move away from his hometown that much.
