More About This Title To Die For


An epic battle between a boy, a boat, and a shark, with extra material including a fact page on tiger sharks, a black and white diagram of a dory, and a list of suggested reads

For his birthday, Christos takes his father's mackerel dory on his first solo trip. He plans to fish and then camp overnight on a local island. But things go terribly, terrifyingly wrong when Christos runs the dory aground on a reef, attracting a 12-foot tiger shark as company for the most harrowing night of his life—a night during which he decides what he would be willing to die for.
