Alabama, 1942. The war is everywhere, but Victor - a 16-year-old boy sent by his father to care for his dying grandmother on a lonely island in Mobile Bay - can only dream of it. Then he wakes one amazing night to a thunderous roar from the Bay...and sees the ominous shadow of an enemy submarine surfacing at night. "Fantastic, extravagant...thoroughly charming." -Boston Globe.

V for Victor based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Story starts out fine and draws you into it but within one hundred pages the author decends to "Hardy Boys" writing for ten-year olds. Research regarding World War II is poorly done. Coincidence piles on coincidence with the ridiculous so quickly I find it hard to credit the editorial reviews this book received. So bad I couldn't finish it! Don't waste your time.
