Read an Excerpt

A Japanese plane was heading right toward him. Danny sprinted, peering over his shoulder as the plane flew closer. He could see into the cockpit. The pilot was glaring at him through his goggled eyes.

Rat, tat, tat, tat,
Rat, tat, tat, tat

Machine gun fire!

Bullets hit the sand around Danny's bare feet.

Run! Danny told himself. Faster!

The roar of the plane got louder. Danny fell forward, smashing his face into the hard sand.

A thundering explosion shook the ground.

And then Danny couldn't hear anything at all.
