Victory

51nvTiyfg0L__SL500_AA240_ Susan Cooper has written a wonderful book - it is currently on our Children's Choice Award List here in Iowa - books all chosen by kids - and I can see why!  Victory is a story about a farm boy, Sam, who is taken to serve on the HMS Victory - a ship on which Lord Nelson will die a hero's death at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.  The book pops to the present every other chapter to tell Molly's story.  Molly is a 21st century English girl that becomes wrapped up in the story of the HMS Victory and is literally drawn into Sam's world.  What a great story - one that will please BOYS and GIRLS alike!
