The Killing Seas

The Killing Seas takes place during World War II. It is about two brothers, Teddy and Patrick, and a wounded Navy Seal named Benny. Teddy and Patrick's parents send them from the Philippines to Guam to escape the war. Their parents are planning to join them there. When their parents are unable to make it they have to find a way back to the Philippines. This is when they meet Benny. Benny is trying to find a way to help them. Benny cooks up a plan to get them out of Guam. He decides to take Patrick and Benny on the USS Indianapolis. When the ship gets hit by a Japanese torpedo, Teddy, Patrick, and Benny have to abandon the ship!! Soon they find themselves floating around the Pacific Ocean on a homemade wooden raft. They face the dangers of hunger, dehydration, and even insanity on their raft. However, the real dangers may not be what they are facing on their raft. The real dangers may be what is UNDER it!!
