Blue Water & Me is a high-adventure story of Penn Wallace's magical first summer fishing with his father, Blue Water Charlie, at age eleven. The pair begin their adventure by ramming a thirty-thousand ton Japanese freighter. Charlie regales Penn with old-time fish stories. Penn swims with dolphins and explores desert islands. As the summer passes, Penn's undying belief in Charlie slowly erodes as he sees his father's feet of clay. Finally, they get caught in an out of season hurricane. They fight for their lives in hundred mile an hour winds and thirty foot waves. Blue Water & Me is a story of father-son bonding that every father and son, or anyone close to a father or a son, should read.
