Summary: Terry Jo Duperrault was 11 when her family was murdered at sea aboard a chartered sailboat off the coast of Florida. She jumped overboard just in time to escape and survived four days on a cork float adrift and alone at sea before being rescued by a freighter. This is the first time Terry Jo, now known as Tere Duperrault Fassbender, has been able to fully tell her story. Co-authored by psychologist and survival expert Richard Logan, readers delve into the details of how a little girl survived the murder of her family; the gradual collapse of the small cork float she used to keep afloat while guarded by a small pod of whales; and the aftermath and the reclamation of life.
