I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book, one of the best I read all summer. Good story, fascinating historical detail from the p.o.v. of a boy who works on the ironclad battleship The Monitor--from its earliest days in construction (when it was the laughingstock of most, who thought it would never float) right up to the famous battle with the Merrimac. Definitely one I'll highly recommend to kids looking for riveting historical fiction.
