Student Saturdays: I Survived- Lauren Tarshis

I Survived the Shark Attack of 1916
Student Reviewer: Maddy

From Goodreads:

Based on true events! It's the summer of 1916 and the Jersey shore is being terrorized by a Great White shark. Can 10-year-old Chet and his friends survive a swim in the local creek?

In the summer of 1916, ten year-old Chet Roscow is captivated by the local news: a Great White shark has been attacking and killing people up and down the Atlantic Coast, not far from Chet's hometown of Springfield, New Jersey.

Then one day, swimming with his friends, Chet sees something in the water. .
Student's Thoughts:
There is a boy who is moving and does not want to.  He is moving into a new neighborhood in New Jersey.  Behind his house is a creek.  He finds boys down at the creek every day.  They all go swimming. One day the little boy is walking around and he decides to go meet the boys.  So, now he goes swimming.  But, one day he has to go home and the other boys stay.  In the next few days one of the boys isn't there!  They figure out why!  Something lurks in the creek!
If you want to find out what's in the creek, check out Shark Attack at your nearest library.
