Waiting on Wednesday (14)

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill over at Breaking the Spine. Summary from goodreads.


Sharks & Boys by Kristen Tracy 
2011

Part adventure and part romance, SHARKS & BOYS follows eight teenagers who wind up adrift at sea in a life raft and struggle to survive while enduring storms, sharks, dehydration, and each other. (and did I mention the sharks...)

This looks cute without being fluff but serious enough without being sullen and brooding. It's also one one the books on my list for The Contemps challenge.

The Storm Before Atlanta
By Karen Schwabach
Publication date: December 28, 2010

At a time when most people have grown weary of the war between the states, two young children are desperate to find their way to the battlefields. Jeremy DeGroot wants nothing more than to join a troop as a drummer boy. For Dulcie, a runaway slave, freedom means she must head directly toward the fighting in the hopes that she'll become "contraband," that is, property of the Union troops. Both Jeremy and Dulcie find a place with the 107th New York Volunteer Regiment and even start to forge a friendship. But all that is threatened when they keep crossing paths with the mysterious Charlie, a young Confederate soldier, who may look like the enemy but feels more like a friend.
