    • Finn is a thoughtful, introspective narrator who bravely challenges why everyone in the village—from schoolchildren to adults—treats the Finer family so poorly.
    • Richard Knight captures the feeling of a community deeply connected to the ocean: “Our lives in Seamer Bay depended on the sea, but we knew from an early age that it was a two-faced friend. It fed us and provided our living, but it could destroy lives too.”
    • The story includes interesting fishing details, such as setting lines at low tide (the hooks baited with worms and then covered with sand to deter seagulls and crabs) to catch codling, flounder, and whiting. There are also tense water rescues; in one instance Finn is trapped by a rushing tide until Davey Finer sails near and pulls him from danger.
    • Giovanni Manna’s evocative paintings showcase the maritime setting and contribute to the novel’s strong sense of place.
