Bob Thompson's father was a fisherman, and so was his father before him. So when Bob joins the crew of the fishing smack the Admiral, it seems perfectly natural. Especially as this is World War I, the Admiral is armed - and Bob gets extra danger money. The first time out, they sink a German sub. It's money for jam, Bob thinks. Until the day the Admiral meets two German subs. Now the crew really will earn their danger money.

Recently republished as a new edition, this book is one of the Shades 2.0 series. This book is perfect for reluctant teens who still want an exciting, unpatronising story that is relevant to their interests and concerns, but who don't want to read a longer novel. With a length of only 6,000 words, and filled with drama, this story will appeal to all reluctant teen readers.
