Publisher Description

It is spring 1929, and Prohibition is in full swing. So when Ruben and Jeddy find a dead body washed up on the shore of their small coastal Rhode Island town, they are sure it has something to do with smuggling liquor. Soon the boys, along with Jeddy’s strongwilled sister, Marina, are drawn in, suspected by rival bootlegging gangs of taking something crucial off the dead man. Then Ruben meets the daring captain of the Black Duck, the most elusive smuggling craft of them all, and it isn’t long before he’s caught in a war between two of the most dangerous prohibition gangs.

Black Duck

I've read this book twice in 4 different schools! Which means I've read it 8 times!!! And I learned that this book is pretty famous! It was super confusing for me when I read it the first time and I decided to never read it but in my other school we had to read it again and after reading it the second time I started understanding little by little and then reading it the third and fourth time I started loving it! But now I forgot a bit of it lol but I thought it was pretty interesting when I read it the third time! After reading it the eighth time I knew it's one of my favorite books now 👍 but I also learned that if we don't understand something the first time, try doing it again and again until u get it and if u still don't get it then just move on 😊 Cuz you have no other option! But you'll love it if u pay attention or read it deeply !! So good luck to everyone reading it out there!
