The She

The She by Carol Plum-Ucci is about people lost at sea. Local legend has it that ships that disappear off of the New Jersey shore are taken by Ella Diablo Agujero - The She-Devil of the Hole.

Eight years ago Evan listened on the radio as his parent's ship was captured by a freak storm and lost in the night. He was convinced it was The She who took them.

Now one of his classmates, Grey, asks for his help. When a sail boat overturned one of her friends was dragged away and never see again. Grey is convinced it was the same force that stole Evan's parents.

But Evan's brother has another theory about what happened to their parents. He has fought for eight years to stop believing in local superstition and find a logical explanation for his parents' disappearance.

What really happened to them and the other ships that have been lost in freak storm-like settings on otherwise calm seas off of the Jersey coast? Carol Plum-Ucci has written a spell-binding novel that will lead you to the answer...
