Ferguson is trying to help his grandfather figure out his legacy. His grandfather doesn't want to have any regrets, like his old friend McDermit, who famously caught a giant lobster but regretted not returning it to sea. So when another giant lobster is caught in their fishing community and put up for auction, Ferguson cooks up a plan with his grandfather to bid on the lobster and set it free. Will this be his grandfather's legacy or will the town's richest man ruin everything? Spit Feathers is the third book in The Lobster Chronicles, a trilogy about how life changes for three boys in a small coastal town when a giant lobster is caught. Each book describes the same events through a different boy's eyes, making for three suspenseful, believable stories and an engrossing reading experience.
I have not read the first two - I actually thought they were about talking lobsters, from the covers and the title. For some reason I decided to read this one from NetGalley. I enjoyed it. A sweet story of a grandfather/grandson relationship and how it affects the boys daily life and friendships. This would be a good realistic fiction book for boys 2nd grade and up.
