Pirate treasure, splintered families, the impacts of climate change, a determined boy, and a compelling immigrant blend together in this adventure for younger teens and middle-grade readers.


Riptides is a lively, fast-paced novel about a 13-year-old boy in coastal Nova Scotia trying to find his place in the world despite an absent father and a family financial crisis.
   Cam O’Connell harvests rockweed for cash and fends off a mean-spirited boy while becoming an ally to a new girl in the community. There's also danger lurking in the waters along these shores and Cam must use his strength, wits and willpower to avert disaster.”
