Book Overview

For fans of Unbroken, this is the incredible true story of a boy who helps to bring closure to the survivors of a World War I disaster and their families fifty years later.

Hunter Scott first learned about the sinking of the US Indianapolis by watching the movie Jaws when he was just eleven-years-old. This was fifty years after the ship had sunk, throwing more than 1,000 men into shark-infested waters--a long fifty years in which justice still had not been served.
It was just after midnight on July 30, 1945 when the US Indianapolis was torpedoed by a Japanese submarine. Those who survived the fiery sinking--some injured, many without life jackets--struggled to stay afloat as they waited for rescue. But the United States Navy did not even know they were missing. As time went on, the Navy needed a scapegoat for this disaster. So it court-martialed the captain for hazarding his ship. The survivors of the Indianapolis knew that their captain was not to blame. For fifty years they worked to clear his name, even after his untimely death.
But the navy would not budge--not until Hunter entered the picture. His history fair project on the Indianapolis soon became a crusade to restore the captain's good name and the honor of the men who served under him.
