Lauren Hillenbrand's Unbroken was published in 2010; in 2014, it was still on national bestseller lists, including ours. This well-told, epic renders the true story of Louie Zamperini, the long-lived (1917-2014) man who transformed himself from a youthful delinquent into an Olympic long-distance runner and a World War II airman lieutenant. From those heights, he was plunged by mechanical difficulties to being a life raft castaway and then a Japanese war captive. This young adult adaptation of his astonishing story contains more than one photographs and an exclusive Lauren Hillenbrand with Zamperini. Editor's recommendation.
