Counter In this successor to the bestselling novel The Cay, readers learn about Timothy s life before he was shipwrecked with the young white boy, Phillip Enright, and about Phillip s life after his rescue from the cay.  Timothy s chapters sketch a murky sea of racial prejudice readers will ache with him at his losses. Phillip s chapters, in a terse first person, depict the narrowness of his mother s world with a clarity heightened by Phillip s blindness. A journey well worth taking. --Kirkus Reviews
