" A window into what happened to the soccer team that was trapped in a cave and the rescue effort to save them. Lots of photos. From advance reader copy. " said.

"The author admits this was rushed into print and, well, it shows. There are some weird moments that taking more time could have avoided, like the discussion of what "stateless" means ("undocmented immigrants" would not have been my first comparison), or what the various ethnic groups the boys were and what that meant (historically and today). Even weirder was his mentioning of Elon Musk's Twitter activities in a passing - if you're going to talk about Musk's attempted involvement in the rescue and his use of Twitter, why not also mention how Musk then made comments on that platform that were seriously questionable? Or why the submarine he proposed wouldn't have worked, given the detail Aronson goes into about the route the divers took?

I'm waiting for another book on the topic to add to our collection as this is a topic I know my readers will want to learn more about; this is just not the book.

" After following this story in the media for days and days last summer, it was really interesting to have all the facts and information laid out in chronological order with so many back stories. It definitely gives you an astounding realization of the miracles that happened in rescuing these boys. " said.

" This book was a fast paced and interesting look at the Thai cave rescue, focusing mostly on the rescuers and their process of how to get the soccer team out of the cave, but talked a bit too about the boys, how they got stuck, and their thoughts and feelings. This is the perfect bite sized information piece to learn about the event. " said.

" This is, in and of itself, an amazing story of survival and a world that united to save a soccer team from Thailand from an impossible flooded cave. The facts are well written and the characters are well represented. It didn't grab my attention, probably because I already knew the story. For someone who didn't know the story it might be a much more interesting read. For me, it was just rehashing the news that I followed intently during the crisis. " said.

"In 2018 when the Thai boys and their coach were trapped in a flooded cave the world watched with bated breath. This story, modified for a younger reader audience, outlines what happened over the period of time that they were missing and the daring research mission to rescue them. Through extensive interviews, news reports and stories Marc Aronson brings to life the people involved in this true life drama. It’s a fascinating read and will appeal to anyone who followed the story at the time or those interested in factual events. Colour photographs, cast of characters and comprehensive footnotes add to the strength of this book.

Suitable for 12+

" This is the average star rating for my 5th Grade Language Arts class. I used this as a nonfiction read aloud. The students were highly engaged in the story; however, there were so many names and high level vocabulary that I think some found it difficult to follow. The book was very well researched.Thank you, Edelweiss+ and Atheneum Books for Young Readers for providing me with an advanced copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. " said.

" Reviewing for professional magazine, so read my GLOWING review in SLC magazine! " said.
