Your Code Name is Jonah, by Edward Packard

Second paragraph of third section (actually page 6):
"Whalesongs are probably no different from birdsongs, except they are longer," Rueff says. "After all, whales have much bigger lungs."
A standard choose-your-own-adventure book; there are moments where you can make a good choice or a bad choice, and moments where the capriciousness of the author pushes you down one track rather than another. Not sure why I picked it up, but you can get it here.

This was the most popular book in my unread pile that I acquired in 2013. Next on that list is Missile Gap, by Charles Stross.

There is a neat little story game called "Cheat Your Own Adventure" (full game, only 2 pages, can be found here) which emulates going through a CYOA book and backtracking when things go wrong. The choices are provided by player input, and the current player chooses.
Good fun for a few hours, and really perfect to play on a forum.
