Rob Engleman has spent all of his seventeen years on a small island, safe from the dangers of the alien world around him. Yet he is not content to live the simple life of an island farmer. When a mysterious boat is found drifting near his island, Rob will take the opportunity it presents him to leave his home and venture into the menacing unknown. Accompanied by his older brother and his friends, Rob’s journey to discover the world beyond his island will lead him to discover hidden treasures of the past and the true value of love and friendship.
