Description

Graduating from high school is supposed to feel like the beginning of your real life. But for Jackson O'Connell, it's more like a slew of endings. In this sequel to Hoops of Steel, Jackson's dream of a basketball scholarship is gone. His surrogate parent Granny Dwyer has died and he has no place to really call home. His relationship with Kelly is in crisis-Kelly is Princeton bound, while Jackson doesn't have a plan beyond the next five minutes. Even Jackson's alcoholic father seems to be getting his life together. Introduced to a gruff old sailor at Granny's funeral, Jackson reluctantly agrees to live at the marina and work at the boatyard. As Jackson experiences the rigors of working for a living and learning how to sail, he gains skills and self-knowledge. Is it enough to help him navigate the challenges he faces and set his own course for the future?
