  • 
  • The Cay by Theodore Taylor
  • By Autumn Beckham
  • We start with Philip, the main character. He lives on an island with his parents.
  • We start with Philip, the main character. He lives on an island with his parents.
  • Germans threaten to bomb the island, so Philip and his other leave in a ship, but it gets torpedoed.
  • He wakes up in the middle of the ocean, on a raft with an old black man and a cat, too busy bathing himself to notice this random boy has awoken.
  • Philip goes blind, and Timothy (the man on the raft) becomes his guide. They find an island and, despite Philip's objections, Timothy steers towards the island anyway.
  • Since Philip is blind, he can't really help to find food or build a shelter. This kind of frustrates him. When Timothy tries to help him, he snaps at Timothy.
