Close to Shore: The Terrifying Shark Attacks of 1916
( by Michael Capuzzo, Crown $16.95 Score: ) One of the most suspenseful books of the season, Close to Shore is an artful blend of drama, history and science. Itís hard to believe that in 1916 swimming in the ocean was a new sport and scientists believed that man-eating sharks lived only in myths! When a rogue great white shark strikes repeatedly off the Jersey Shore and then moves on to the New York beaches, mass hysteria breaks out. Youíll have to read parts of this with your eyes closed! A top-notch adaptation of an adult book by a master storyteller. Be forewarned, this may turn the tide on your future dips in the deep blue sea. 9 & up.
