Chet Roscow is finally feeling at home in his uncle's little New Jersey town. He has three new friends, and they love cooling off in the creek on hot summer days. But then comes shocking news: A massive shark has been attacking swimmers in the ocean along the Jersey Shore, not far from where Chet is staying. Fear is in the air. So when Chet spots a gray fin in the creek, he's sure it's his imagination running wild. It's impossible he's about to come face-to-face with a killer shark... right? Based on the real life events of the Jersey Shore shark attacks of 1916, this graphic novel brings Lauren Tarshis's New York Times bestselling I Survived series to vivid life.

Includes a nonfiction section at the back with historical photos and facts about the real-life shark attacks.

Raves & reviews:

Praise for I Survived the Sinking of the Titanic, 1912: The Graphic Novel:

"The first installment of Tarshis' sprawling prose disaster oeuvre for young readers is reimagined in visually interesting full-color comic panels that support its recognizable thrilling pace and convenient twists. Many of the most exciting scenes are largely wordless, spotlighting the propulsive action amid growing tensions. A fresh and interesting adaptation, making for an easy crowd pleaser." — Kirkus Reviews

"Dark, subdued, inky art sets a somber tone, while a parade of mostly small panels builds suspense and promises to engage readers." — Jody Kopple, Shady Hill School, Cambridge, MA
