Gone to Drift tells the story of a 12-year-old Jamaican boy, Lloyd, and his search for his beloved grandfather, Maas Conrad, a fisherman who is lost at sea.
Lloyd suspects that his grandfather has witnessed an illegal capture of dolphins for the tourist trade and that he has come to harm. Interspersed with Lloyd’s quest on land and sea is a second voice - of Maas Conrad himself, who, unknown to Lloyd is alive; marooned on a rock, he describes his life growing up in a rural fishing village in a long-gone era. Gone to Drift is an exciting adventure story about a boy confronted with difficult moral choices.
