After his father is killed fighting for the Union, thirteen-year-old Tom Carroll takes a job at a Brooklyn ironworks to support his family. He quickly learns that they are building an ironclad "unsinkable" ship to be called the Monitor to finally sink the Confederates' "unsinkable" ship, the Merrimac.

This is a brilliantly written description of a major sea battle through the eyes of a teenaged boy who both helped build the Monitor and fought on it.

Avi is the author of more than fifty books for children and young adults, including the 2003 Newbery Medal winner Crispin: The Cross of Lead. Along with his two Newbery Honors, he has won many other awards for his fiction. He lives with his family in Denver.

Reviews

“[An] action-packed account of a battle that changed the course of naval warfare…This is gripping historical fiction from a keenly imagined perspective.”

“[An] exciting, fast-paced historical adventure.”

“Readers may find themselves so absorbed in Tom’s exciting narrative that they will seek out for themselves other good works on the Civil War.”
