Coping with the recent death of his father, twelve-year-old Jacob Mosher is sent to spend the summer with his aging, estranged (and strange!) grandparents in a rural seaside town. Reluctantly, he trades the security of his foster mum and a big city for a blind grandfather, Frank, who dresses like a sea captain and conducts flag-raising ceremonies, and a quirky grandmother, Pearl, who sometimes forgets her dentures. Jacob has two months to figure out how to deal with his ailing grandmother, the surging river tides and the family secret that's haunting his newfound grandparents.

Jacob's Landing is a beautiful read. It tells the story of Jacob, a young boy spending the summer with his estranged Grandparents, while coping with the loss of his father. Jacob is hesitant and resistant to this experience, however the more time he spends at Newport Landing, the more secrets he uncovers. Secrets that allow him to appreciate his surroundings, and love and accept his new found family. Definitely one I would recommend.
