The Boy, the Boat, and the Beast by Samantha M. Clark

Welcome to Middle-Grade Monday. Today I am spotlighting The Boy, the Boat, and the Beast
by Samantha M. Clark.

The Book- (blurb)
A boy washes up on a mysterious, seemingly uninhabited island with no recollection of who he is or how he got there. his only "companion," is the bullying voice in his head and the only clue he has is a piece of fabric in his pocket. There are two things the boy knows: if he attempts to flee via the water, the monster in the sea will drag him under; if he attempts to flee through the forest, the beast will get him.

But then a blanket washes up on shore, bringing memories of a life to him, voices that sound familiar, and he remembers: he has parents! Surely they must be looking for him! A light flashes in the distance, and the boy resolves to head toward it, to find his parents, to go home. Setting out, he treks along the shore buoyed by this new found hope until his path is cut off and only one option remains- the forest.


  1. Did only part of your post show up here? This seems incomplete from what you usually post. It does sound like an intriguing story though.

  2. LOL, no. I've been helping my mom and this was all I was able to get up in time.
