Nine-year old Bubby has just found out his mother’s cancer has returned with a vengeance. His best friend, Brandi, is moving to California. On top of all of this, Bubby’s father decides to quit his job and build a boat in the basement. Everyone, except Bubby, sees this as a sure sign of insanity. A story for middle grade readers (ages 8-12) and adults alike, Sailboat in a Cellar is a coming-of-age tale told through the eyes of Bubby who, during a summer of great uncertainty, learns more about himself, reconciles with issues of life and death, and discovers the answer to the great mystery of how his dad will get the sailboat out of the cellar.

    I recently discovered and read "Sailboat in a Cellar." This book is beautifully written, telling the story of a young boy, his terminally ill mother, and his father, who preposterously builds a sailboat in the family basement. Steffen's work addresses, with great sensitivity, issues of life, loss, grief, and the ultimate triumph of the human spirit. I highly recommend it, for readers of all ages.
