This award-winning novel remains a powerful classic of prejudice, love, and survival. In 1942, 11-year-old Phillip Enright lives with his parents on the Dutch island of Curacao, but when the war moves too close for comfort, his mother decides to travel with him back to the safety of Virginia. When their boat is torpedoed, however, Phillip is blinded and finds himself adrift on a life raft with an old black man and a cat. They eventually land on a deserted island. Phillip is suspicious of "the large Negro," but soon grows to trust--and ultimately love--the patient and generous Timothy. Dedicated to "Dr. King''''s Dream," The Cay has a clear message that friendship is colorblind; it is also a terrific adventure story of a young, newly blinded man learning to survive on an uninhabited island. (Ages 12 and older) --Richard Farr

Library Journal
"Innocense vs. wisdom , black vs. white, growing up and surviving... forcefully portrayed

Saturday Review
"A totally absorbing story...starkly dramatic, believable and compelling."

Ingram
Blinded and shipwrecked on a tropical island, Phillip overcomes his prejudices and comes to deeply respect the illiterate yet remarkable black sailor who rescues him, and learns to survive on his own despite his blindness.
