Almost nothing about the actual historical events
Reviewed in the United States on March 29, 2022
The book is about a fictional group of kids who exist at the same time as the New Jersey shark attacks. A few times throughout the book, characters mention newspaper articles about the attacks. Other than that, the only shark sighting and attack happens in the last pages of the book. 90% of the story is about the main character trying to find his place in his new town and new group of friends. I literally apologized to my kids when we finished it.
