Personal Response- I liked this book because it was about adventure. There was a lot of nerve racking scenes where I was cringing a lot. I got really scared for one of them at one point in the book. I called Jeff Probst and made sure this wasn't a true story.

Plot- This was about four kids that went on a seven day boat trip. But they end up in a storm. The older two adults got on life rafts, but the four kids stayed on the boat. The boat ended up on an island and the four kids had to learn to survive together. They had little to no food, a tank full of water, but the tank had a hole in it. They hit the tank with an axe and watched all the water drain out. They then had to all go look for water, but had no luck. One of them who was named Vanessa tried to fix a SAT phone but only got a two minute phone call out of it. The two minutes was not long enough for the Coast Guard to trace them.

If they cannot find any fresh water they will all die, unless they know how to get water from digging a whole of a tree. The two captains Joe and Dexter failed at staying on their boat and they paid with their
