Life is dull for Malachi (11) after his mother’s death: Dad just stays at home being boring. Things change after Malachi finds a ship in a bottle. News about an eco-protest prompts Malachi to see for himself, stowing away on a truck driven by the school bully’s father. He gets more than he bargained for. Funny and mighty exciting.
