Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Tougias’s third-person narrative—condensed and more tightly focused than the adult version—brings to life the struggles and heroism of the sailors and rescuers alike…A sure-fire hit with young readers who are always ready for a good disaster tale.” Kirkus Reviews
“The dramatic narrative is engaging and won’t disappoint students who enjoy adventure or rescue stories” School Library Journal
“This true story…reads like a thriller, with one thing after another going wrong and each challenge seemingly impossible to overcome. The courage displayed by the team may inspire readers to learn more about their exciting (if life-threatening) careers.” Booklist
