One confusing passage involved Willie and Mr Wallace, fisherman and harbor master. Critical piece of the plot, but I had to keep remembering who was whom. When characters are engaged in a passage, sometimes the names that begin with the same first letter,p make the reader stop to say - who was who?
Good Points
The plot was a twisting and turning opportunity to see the best of people and the worst of people.

Set in Scotland and involving whales, humans who loved whales, and the temperamental sea, this story explored facets of human nature that we don't always read about in YA Lit.
