A gripping read for preteens to adults...

from the back:

"A Daring Search for home port in a stormy sea.

David and Annie Ross haven't heard from their father in years. Now, with the loss of their mother, the thirteen-yer old twins set out on their own. Their destination: Alaska, the last place their dad was spotted.

Aided by an elderly fisherman, the twins hitch a ride on a forty-foot fishing boat for a perilous journey along the Inside Passage. It's now or never, although winter is bearing down--a time when most seasoned mariners would say no to such a risky trip.

Adventure awaits with each new day, and when their captain's health begins to fail, the twins find themselves in charge. Will their father even be there when ... if ... they reach the Last Frontier? Join Annie and David as they confront their deepest fears on a voyage that will forever change their lives!"

"In RUNAWAYS ON THE INSIDE PASSAGE, the dream of going North is fully realized, grandly achieved, and presented in the proper adventuring spirit. This book has much to say to young adults about freedom, self-knowledge, and courage."--David Guterson, author, SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS
