On an island off the coast of Virginia, the daughter of a US Lifesaver investigates a series of suspicious shipwrecks It’s 1895. Rhoda Midyette lives on Glenn Island, where her father is keeper of the US Lifesaving Station. He leads rescue operations whenever a ship hits the dangerous shoals around the island—which has happened far too often lately. One stormy night, when Rhoda and her father’s team help the survivors off their destroyed boat, she spies a mysterious light on the cape above Graveyard Shoal. The next day, she finds footprints in the sand. Is someone deliberately causing the collisions? Swaying their lanterns so the sailors will navigate toward the perilous shallows instead of away from them? Or is it a ghost light—and are the footprints those of the mythical mangled mariner? As she digs deeper, Rhoda uncovers clues that threaten everything she knows. With so much at stake—including her best-friendship with the gravely ill Pearl—Rhoda has to trust in herself and find a way to save lives. This ebook includes a historical afterword.

No matter that the ship carrying them and the other juvenile criminals is captained by Tom’s father.

So Tom and Midgely decide to go overboard! So do other boys who seize their chance at liberty–boys who aren’t so innocent, and who have it in for Tom. To make things worse, the islands in the Pacific look inviting, but Tom remembers his father’s warnings: headhunters and cannibals lurk there! The boys go anyway. And as conflict among them mounts, as they encounter the very dangers Captain Tin spoke of, Tom must fight to keep himself and Midgely alive. From the Hardcover edition.
