Ben wants to learn to surf—and stay alive.

Ben is determined to learn to surf. In the rough North Atlantic waters near his home, only the tough can make it on the water. His first attempt is a disaster. Then he meets Ray, a surfing veteran from California. Ray promises to teach him to surf—and to face his inner demons. As Ben becomes more comfortable on his board he learns to face his fears and prove that he has what it takes to become a Wave Warrior.

"A brief, engaging tale of a 16-year-old boy who challenges himself and comes out a winner. Recommended." - CM Magazine

"Cancer, death, the elderly, teen life and conflicts are handled very well in this short novel...a sports novel that is neither too technical nor bogged down in terminology and technique." - Resource Links

"The descriptions of both the setting and the surf action are first rate." - NMRLS Youth Services Book Review
