Yolen does it again! I loved everything about this book, except the end when the "theory" is not revealed! I still don't know what happened, nor do I know what the narrator's theory is! Someone tell me!

On Dec. 4, 1872, the Mary Celeste was found drifting on the open sea, with no one left on board. What happened to the captain, his crew, and his passengers? We still don’t know.
