"The fast-paced and suspenseful plot will keep readers rooting for Owen, Arturo, and the others." --School Library Journal

Owen's plan to sail away on an adventure puts him on a collision course with some very dangerous people.

When Owen's parents leave him on his own for a week, the sixteen-year-old gets bored and hatches a crazy idea: sneak onto the yacht that's visiting the sleepy Pacific Coast island where he lives and stow away on an adventure! Once on board the vessel, Owen quickly finds this is anything but innocent fun. The ship is packed with teenagers from Central America, and it looks like Owen has stumbled into a people-smuggling operation.

Complications pile up and as things head from bad to worse, a haunting incident from Owen's past tightens its grip on him. There's only one way to break free and make his way home. Owen and the first mate, Arturo -- a former street kid -- must work together to commandeer the boat and win the trust of those on board. But who's friend and who's foe in the shifting tides?
