This book takes place in Glouster, Massachusetts. Bobby is in trouble with the law. He owes his ex-wife money for child support and he can't afford it. Bobby needs a lot of money quickly and desperately. He gets a job on the Andrea Gail which is a sword fishing boat. Bobby can come home with a quarter of a million dollars or he may not even make it home at all. It depends on what the weather is like. To find out what happens to Bobby and the Andrea Gail, read THE PERFECT STORM by Sebastian Junger. (Kirk D., 8th grade student, Rundlett Middle School, Concord, New Hampshire)
