Shark On Line

by Carla Allen

This book tells the history of the Yarmouth Shark Scramble, the story of it's biggest shark catch and the urban legend that resulted from one of the author's photos of that shark, other shark catch and fishing stories and anecdotes, shark research findings, and shark attack stories from all over the world. There is information about conservation efforts as well as about the practice of finning and attempts and achievements toward ending it.

This book intrigued me from the first page and kept my interest right to the end. It's definitely a good choice for anyone interested in sharks or fishing (and I am not particularly), and I have a sneaking suspicion that a lot of teenage boys would enjoy it. I found several errors in grammar/proofreading and continuity, but the author's writing style is clear and easy to follow.
