Beyond the Bright Sea by Lauren Wolk

Lesson Plans by Lauren Ayube

When 12 year old Crow was just a baby, she was put on a skiff and set out into the ocean. She washed up on the shore of one of the tiny Elizabeth Islands in Massachusetts. Taken in by a solitary man who she calls Osh, Crow adapts to island life but always wonders about her past and her family. Award winning Beyond the Bright Sea is a wondrous tale about family, love, and finding yourself.
