Very engaging and interesting historical fiction about a boy who worked on and then fought on The Monitor during the Civil War. Glossary at end helps with unfamiliar ship vocabulary. I thought I found anything and everything about boats to be boring beyond words but this novel has me interested in checking out the Monitor's website and visiting the museum!
