So Close to Home by Michael J. Tougias and Alison O'Leary tells a true story which makes it all the more remarkable! The main story deals with the Downs family, a husband, wife, 8-yr.-old boy and 11-yr.-old girl. They were on a freighter that a German U-Boat torpedoed! The story of how they survived it is really good! This book also deals with other aspects of the war on the sea that I found interesting as well.
