I don't know if it's fair for me to rate a book from a genre I don't normally like. I found so much of it boring because I'm not interested in boats, rowing, or Hitler. I enjoyed the personal part of the story, particularly Joe's life and relationships. The final chapters describing the actual Olympics were great, too.

If you do love boats, rowing, and/or Hitler history, you'll love all of the book, not just the parts I enjoyed.

FACING THE MOUNTAIN by Daniel James Brown is an adaption of the acclaimed work of adult nonfiction. This engaging true story explores the Japanese American heroes of World War II. Facing discrimination at home, this riveting narrative nonfiction follows three soldiers deployed to Europe and the challenges faced by their families back home.

trying to get out of the rut with reading the same thing over and over again (sci-fi), I found myself reading this book and thoroughly enjoying it. I feel that the game was more than just about a few brawny kids paddling a boat. The more you dove into the book you found out about the minds/planning/overcoming hardships and what they had to do as a collective to get there.
