I was intrigued when I came across this book. I remember this event and how scary it was just watching the news reports on TV but couldn’t remember how the situation ended. Did they all make it out? What happened? I just couldn’t remember.

This book tells the story from one of the main diver’s point of view. It was chilling reading his experiences. There were times when I felt claustrophobic and completely stressed out knowing that this actually occurred and that the rescuers had to put themselves at risk, over and over again, to try and rescue the boys and their coach.

Finding out how they actually completed the rescue was amazing and so intensely scary.

The challenge I had with this book is that it tried to wrap up these thirteen lessons along with the story. It made sense, as it was written, but it wasn’t really what I wanted to read about. I would have been more engaged with the book all the way through if it wasn’t broken up with the lessons and instead, just focused on the story of the rescue.

But overall, it’s still a good book and definitely worth the read!

Thank you to #Aurum and #NetGalley for making this book available for review. All opinions expressed are my own.
