    4. I have a special relationship with this novel I believe it was one of the first longer novels I read growing up Surprisingly, even now in 2018, I can still remember aspects of the plot An intense, epic yet intimate WWII thriller, this is the tale of the crew of an American PT boat and it s harrowing journey as it battles the Japanese Navy.


    5. I read this first in 5th grade and was amazed It s still a fun, easy read This was the first novel I ever read that really made me think about fiction and how it operates It s probably not really a five star book but it is to me.


    6. One of the first novels I have ever read as a child The story has always stuck in my head even after a 26 year naval career Slewfoot


    7. I was in an accelerated reading program in the fifth grade and this was the first book I read in that program Already an avid reader, this continued that trajectory.



    8. Set during WWII on a PT boat in the Pacific Scary at times and sad too to think that in reality out of 531 boats 99 were lost The average age to join a PT boat according to was 21.
