ALA Best Books for Young Adults WINNER 2004


“A remarkable read . . . a flash photo of the moment when our fascination with sharks transformed from awe into mortal dread.”
Entertainment Weekly

“The most perfect beach book ever. Better than Jaws–an amazing story, terrific writing, and the Gilded Age setting is fascinating. I loved it.”
Linda Marotta, Shakespeare & Company, New York City

“Popular history meets popular science in this thrilling shark story. As in Seabiscuit, the author interweaves social history with a suspenseful story told from different characters’ points of view, including that most fascinating character of all: the shark itself.”
Arsen Kashkashian, Boulder Book Store, Boulder, Colorado

“This riveting book skillfully combines historical fact with shark science and lore. A first-rate thriller that’s all the more spine-tingling because it really happened.”
Anne Edkins, Vroman’s Bookstore, Pasadena, California

“A riveting account of the terrorizing shark attacks [of 1916]. Meticulously researched, it provides fascinating information about the history of the great white shark as well as a social commentary of America during World War I. Informative, entertaining, enthralling.”
Tova Beiser, Brown University Bookstore, Providence, Rhode Island
