This book got me through highschool. In fact, I checked out a copy from the library so many times, that by the end of my senior year, I asked the library if I could just buy that copy from them. Did I mention I was a nerd? I still have that book....

Matilda by Roald Dahl | Just read it to my daughter...appreciated it even more this time around!

On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane’s bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary odysseys of the Second World War.
