Torpedoed: The True Story of the World War II Sinking of the Children’s Ship by Deborah Heiligman

Grades 9 – 12
Torpedoed: The True Story of the World War II Sinking of "The Children's Ship"

This book is the intense story of children whose parents sent them away on boats during World War II in order to save their lives. The passenger ship SS City of Benares left for Canada in 1940 with 100 children and chaperones. However, the warships escorting the Benares got torpedoed, putting everyone in danger. Some survived and many did not, and this is their story.

Thanks to SLJ for a review copy of this book.
