Abby: Lost at Sea Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Abby: Lost at Sea

It's 1847, and when her parents announce that the family will be moving to Hawaii to help her sick uncle on his ranch, thirteen-year-old Abby Kendall is devastated. She doesn't want to leave her home, or her friends, particularly her best friend, Luke. An orphan who lives with his cruel aunt, Luke is like one of the family, but his aunt refuses to let him move to Hawaii with the Kendalls. Abby boards a ship for the sea voyage to Hawaii with her family, not knowing that Luke has run away from his aunt and stowed away on board. Abby is determined to keep him hidden until it's too late to turn back. But she doesn't expect that she and Luke will be swept overboard in a terrible storm, and left lost at sea in a tiny boat. It will take all of their courage and determination to find their way back to Abby's family, as they face many dangers along the way, including storms, capture by pirates, and being lost at sea and in the jungle.
