A Boy at War: A Novel of Pearl Harbor

On December 7, 1941, Adam and his friends Davi and Martin are out fishing on a boat in Hawaii's Pearl Harbor. But suddenly Japanese fighter planes begin to drop bombs in the area. The boys frantically row to shore only to see that the American warship U.S.S. Arizona --- the ship on which Adam's military dad is stationed --- has been obliterated in the bombing. This very personalized look at Pearl Harbor gives new perspective to this time in history.
