<b>In this captivating and lavishly illustrated young adult edition of her award-winning #1 <i>New York Times</i>聽bestseller, Laura Hillenbrand tells the story of a former Olympian's courage, cunning, and fortitude following his plane crash in enemy territory. This adaptation of <i>Unbroken</i> introduces a new generation to one of history's most thrilling survival epics.聽</b><br /><br />On a May afternoon in 1943, an American military plane crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared. It was that of a young lieutenant, the plane鈥檚 bombardier, who was struggling to a life raft and pulling himself aboard. So began one of the most extraordinary sagas of the Second World War.<br />聽<br />The lieutenant鈥檚 name was Louis Zamperini. As a boy, he had been a clever delinquent, breaking into houses, brawling, and stealing. As a teenager, he had channeled his defiance into running, discovering a supreme talent that carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when war came, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to his doomed flight, a tiny raft, and a drift into the unknown.<br />聽<br />Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, a sinking raft, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would respond to desperation with ingenuity, suffering with hope and humor, brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would hang on the fraying wire of his will.<br />聽<br />Featuring more than one hundred photographs plus an exclusive interview with Zamperini, this breathtaking odyssey鈥攁lso captured on film by director Angelina Jolie鈥攊s a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the ability to endure against the unlikeliest of odds.<br /><br /><br /><b>Praise for聽<i>Unbroken<br /></i></b><br />"This adaptation of Hillenbrand's adult bestseller is highly dramatic and exciting, as well as painful to read as it lays bare man's hellish inhumanity to man."鈥?lt;b><i>Booklist</i>, STARRED</b><br /><br />"This captivating book emphasizes the importance of determination, the will to survive against impossible odds, and support from family and friends. A strong, well-written work."鈥?lt;b><i>SLJ<br /></i></b><br />"This fine adaptation ably brings an inspiring tale to young readers."鈥?lt;i><b>Kirkus</b><br /></i>
