Betty Burnett's book is nothing more than a compilation of weekly news magazine articles available after the bombing. This is a book that belongs on a middle school shelf. I realize now that Rosen publishing does scholastic books. There are only 65 pages in the book from forward to appendix. There is only one first person account of the bombing. The heroic work of the crew is not discussed in any detail. There was a fantastic opportunity to discuss the challenge faced by the female chief engineer Deborah Courtney to save the ship; a first I believe in the anals of naval lore.Many of the pictures do not belong in the book as they are not of the Cole.I will donate the book I bought to my local middle school library.
