: New: Book Report: Livesaving Lessons

This book by swordfisherwoman Linda Greenlaw is different—it's about adopting a teenager. This feels like higher stakes than life-or-death actions out on the water: Greenlaw and her daughter have a chance to mess up the daughter's long-term happiness. And since the daughter was getting away from an abusive situation, happiness was not something to take for granted. Interesting bits about small-town-everybody-knows-everybody life on a small island (and how it turns out everybody doesn't know everybody that well); responding to messages from a boarding school, making decisions about a far-away situation; seining herring.
