Two stories in one book. Faces in the Flames: A Ghost Story tells about a teen, named Cam, who SCUBA dives on his grandfather's sunken WWII ship, along with his dad. Going into the sunken ship, he retrieves a shiny keepsake that seemed to 'call' to him. Little did he know it came with a ghost. He and his friends had to figure out what the ghost wanted of him, why it chose Cam, and what Cam had to do to get rid of the ghost.
The second part, Faces in the Flames: The True Story tells briefly tells the actual stories of 11 sailors as they fought for survival and rescue from a burning, sinking ship in WWII. This is the inspiring story of the USS Mississinewa, sunk in WWII by the first use of a suicide sub by the Imperial Japanese Navy.

For an older reader, like myself, it’s an opportunity to enjoy a good story and recall that sweet time of youth, when all things are new and all things are possible.
