Seventy years later, the bombing of Pearl Harbor comes to life for a new generation of readers!
Ever since Danny's mom moved him to Hawaii, away from the dangerous streets of New York City, Danny has been planning to go back. He's not afraid of the crime or the dark alleys. And he's not afraid to stow away on the next ship out of Pearl Harbor.
But that morning, the skies fill with fighter planes. Bombs pound the harbor. Bullets rain down on the beaches. Danny is shocked -- and, for the first time, he is truly afraid. He's a tough city kid. But can Danny survive the day that will live in infamy?
I Survived Pearl Harbor
I realize this is a fictional series for children, but the opening chapter depicts a Japanese pilot chasing a boy down the beach. While the Japanese were ruthless fighters in WWII, they did not attack civilians on December 7th - they attacked military targets. The author could have told the story from the eyes of people who were there - Mess Cook Dorie Miller for example. This is FICTION with enough facts sprinkled it in to make it look legitimate. Perhaps if you watched the movie "Pearl Harbor" you would also be misled in assuming the Japanese attacked civilians like this.
Best book ever
