The Boys in the Cave: Deep Inside the Impossible Rescue in Thailand by Matt Gutman
[book cover]

After a practice in June 2018, a Thai soccer coach took a dozen of his young players to explore a famous but flood-prone cave.

It was one boy's birthday, but neither he nor the dozen resurfaced. Worried parents and rescuers flocked to the mouth of a cave that seemed to have swallowed the boys without a trace. Ranging in age from eleven to sixteen, the boys were all members of the Wild Boars soccer team. When water unexpectedly inundated the cave, blocking their escape, they retreated deeper inside, taking shelter in a side cavern. While the world feared them dead, the thirteen young souls survived by licking the condensation off the cave's walls, meditating, and huddling together for warmth.
