Devil's Bridge

About The Book

From the award-winning author of Weasel comes a chapter book about a young boy willing to stop at nothing to defend his father’s record in an annual fishing tournament at Martha’s Vineyard.

For Ben, there’s more involved in the annual Striped Bass Derby than catching the biggest fish. Before Ben’s father passed away, no one had ever beaten his record, and Ben is determined to make sure he will be the only one that ever does.

So when Ben overhears two men plotting to win the prize money by cheating, he knows the competition and his father’s record are in his hand. Ben has to stop them, at all costs, but bringing the men to justice turns out to be a chase that could put him in real danger.
