Red Kayak by Priscilla Cummings

Brady is just a regular kid in modern times who lives with his mom and dad in a very middle class/lower middle class life in Maryland. Dad is a fisher/crab catcher and mom is a nurse maybe? Not your average suburban family, but very real Americana kind of family. Anyway, Brady and his best friends are thrown into turmoil when Brady’s neighbor and son go missing. Who is at fault and what really happened are two questions that haunt Brady as he rips his life up trying to find the truth. A good story about real consequences to stupid actions, as well as speaks to the strength of family and listening to your heart.
