Praise

Praise for Heroes of the Surf by Elisa Carbone:

"Carbone … writes an exciting first-person narrative here, with plenty of sensory details … and a consistently boy-like perspective. Shaded with colors, lines, and crosshatching, Carpenter’s drawings … capture intense emotions in a series of beautifully composed, often dramatic scenes." —Booklist, starred review

"Riveting" —Kirkus, starred review

"Boys, especially, will be captivated by the story of a sea rescue in the early days of the Coast Guard." —School Library Journal

"… [a] spirited introduction to historical fiction." —Horn Book

“The high interest subject and simple words create a good read for younger students.” —Library Media Connection
