I Survived the Shark Attacks of 1916
Author: Lauren Tarshis
Year Reviewed:: 2011
Review: The world of 1916 widely believed that sharks were harmless, until the first twelve days of July. Four deaths were accounted for, and a close call... a leg bite was survived. Ten-year-old Chet Roscoe tells the historical fiction account, laced with elements of friendships, trying to fit in, playing pranks, along with plenty of factual information.
