 Why we love this book:

The Boys in the Boat may be the only historical non-fiction book I couldn't put down; it was as gripping as my favorite novels. It left me completely in awe of the tenacious team of rowers who prevailed when no one expected them to. Their incredible determination and focus are inspiring. This book makes you feel like you're right there on the boat with them the whole way.
