Description

From award-winning Jamaican author Diana McCaulay, Gone to Drift is a powerful voice-driven middle grade novel about family set in Jamaica.

Lloyd comes from a long line of fishermen. Growing up in Kingston, Jamaica, Lloyd feels most at home with the sea and his grandfather, Maas Conrad, at his side.

When his grandfather doesn't return from a fishing trip, Lloyd fears he has gone to drift. The sea may be in Lloyd's blood, but as he searches for his grandfather, he discovers a side of the ocean--and the people who use it--that he's never known before.

Told in the alternating voices of Lloyd and Maas Conrad, Gone to Drift is a moving story of family, courage, and the wonders of the oceans we call home.

display_description Gone to Drift tells the story of a 12-year-old Jamaican boy, Lloyd, and his search for his beloved grandfather, Maas Conrad, a fisherman who is lost at sea. Lloyd suspects that his grandfather has witnessed an illegal capture of dolphins for the tourist trade and that he has come to harm. Interspersed with Lloyd's quest on land and sea is a second voice - of Maas Conrad himself, who, unknown to Lloyd is alive; marooned on a rock, he describes his life growing up in a rural fishing village in a long-gone era. Gone to Drift is an exciting adventure story about a boy confronted with difficult moral choices.
