Into the Killing Seas, by Michael P. Spradlin

Summary: In 1945 twelve-year-old Patrick and his younger brother Teddy stowaway on the U.S.S. Indianapolis in a desperate attempt to get back to the Philippines where they last saw their parents just before the Japanese invasion–but when the ship is sunk they find themselves clinging to a piece of debris without food or water, and with hungry sharks circling below.

One thought on “Into the Killing Seas, by Michael P. Spradlin

  1. I don’t think this book should be a Newbery winner for this year. In this book, characters are trying to survive on a piece of wood in the ocean until rescue ships come and save the survivors of a ship wreck. There were about four times in the first three chapters that the main character commented on the language others were using, and that got really annoying, and the ending was rushed. I’ve read much better books this year.
