A Boy at War: A Novel of Pearl Harbor
by Harry Mazer 

For Adam, living near Honolulu, this Sunday morning is one he has been looking forward to--fishing with friends, away from the ever-watchful eyes of his father, a navy lieutenant. Then, right before his eyes, Adam watches Japanese planes fly overhead and attack the U.S. Navy. All he can think is that it's just like in the movies. But as he sees his father's ship, the Arizona, sink beneath the water, he realizes this isn't make-believe. It's real.  Over the next few days, Adam searches for answers--about his friends, the war, and especially, his father. But Adam soon learns sometimes there are no answers.
