V/A  Tougias, Michael & Casey Sherman.  Finest Hours.  Holt, 2014.  161p.  978-0-8050-9764-1.  17.99.
  In a novel-like format, coast guardsmen tell of their heroic rescue of surviving crew members aboard the Fort Mercer and Pendleton oil tankers.  Both vessels -- in the same time period -- literally split in half during a 1952 horrendous New England storm.  Great for book report assignments.  Can also be offered to readers who thrive on adventure and excitement.    E.M. Roublow (ret.)
