Synopsis

Danger Money by Mary Chapman

As a World War One recruit onboard the Admiral, all Bob Thompson can think about is how much he will earn. Bob's mother doesn't want him to join the ship, for fear that he will be injured as the crew defends themselves against German subs. Ignoring his mother's pleas, Bob is unprepared for this reality until the Admiral meets two German subs. He realises he is now in deep water, but is it too late? Danger Money is part of the Shades 2.0 series, published by Ransom Publishing, a specialist publisher for reluctant and struggling readers. The Shades 2.0 books offer fast-paced, shorter stories (just 64pp each) for older readers who may find longer books too daunting, but who still want the excitement of a great story told with pace and style. Danger Money is ideal for reluctant readers aged 12+ with a reading age of 9 - 10 years.
