“A Crack in the Sea,” by H.M. Bouwman (Putnam), is an amazing book. This book can bring you to adventures in one sitting!
It’s all about a portal in the sea. But it opens only when it is least expected. It’s a portal to the second world. It is never shown on maps. So you have to find it yourself.
But the Raft King wants to change that all. He wants to find a way to make everyone in Raftworld have a way to get back home to the first world, Earth. To do that, he needs a special boy. His name is Pip. Pip has an incredible gift. He can talk to fish! So the Raft King takes Pip — but for a good reason.
Pip misses his family. And his sister Kinchen and a Raftworld girl named Caesar are trying to take him back. But how will they do it? Well, you’ll have to find out by reading this amazing book!
