Description

Life gets even tougher for Lloyd, a boy from a Jamaican fishing village, when his grandfather goes missing at sea - ‘gone to drift’ as the local fishers say. Lloyd sets out to find him but no one will help except for an uptown girl who studies dolphins, his best friend Dwight and - just perhaps - a mad man called Slowly on a sun-baked beach.

Truth? Respect? Survival? Gone to Drift is a powerful adventure story in which Lloyd discovers that the enemies of his grandfather - and of the Caribbean Sea that he loves - are closer to home than he could ever imagine.

The author, Diana McCaulay, is an award-winning Jamaican writer. This is her first Young Adult novel.
