Review: Shark Life: True Stories About Sharks & the Sea

User Review  - Goodreads

I can't believe this booktalk staple isn't in my Goodreads! It's so fun to read about the Jaws author's adventures as a beginning diver and growing shark expert. I like to read aloud his first dive on p. 10, with the caveat about shark fin soup on p. 3. Read full review
