Where to buy it


Ridge isn't thrilled about the idea of spending his whole Spring Break with his mom, but when they get an invitation from his mom’s billionaire friend to join him on his private yacht for a Caribbean cruise, how can he say no?

Karl, the billionaire’s son, is less excited. He knows where they are headed—right into the middle of the Bermuda Triangle. There are dozens of stories about ships and aircraft that mysteriously disappeared while traveling through that legendary region of the Atlantic. Karl thinks it has something to do with aliens. Ridge thinks Karl has been spending too much time on the internet. But when strange and inexplicable things start happening aboard their vessel as it gets closer to the triangle, Ridge starts to wonder if Karl might be right.

This short novel is a high-interest, low-reading level book for middle-grade readers who are building reading skills, want a quick read or say they don’t like to read!

Editorial Reviews

“A tale for fantasy enthusiasts, or those who want to learn something about the Caribbean Sea. After reading this story, teachers could assign students to write their own fantasy short stories about the Bermuda Triangle.”

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database (CLCD)

“An excellent story about determination, team work and the quest of the unknown. It would be an excellent addition to any collection. Highly Recommended.”
