TORPEDOED!

Torpedoed! A World War II Story of a Sinking Passenger Ship and Two Children’s Survival at Sea recreates the events surrounding the sinking of the Athenia in World War II. Through first-hand accounts, interviews with survivors, powerful images, and primary sources readers relive the days leading up to the surprise attack and the terrifying hours in lifeboats as survivors battled the elements and imagined the worst. The amazing stories of fear and hope are recounted through the words of 11-year-old Russell Park and 14-year-old Florence Kelly. Rich details help young readers empathize with children their age as they face a life-threatening and traumatizing situation that would stay with them all their lives.
