The Raft (YA)


Book #27 Read in 2013
The Raft by S.A. Bodeen 

Robie is heading home to her parents, who live on an island, after spending a month with her aunt in Honolulu.  She hops a ride on the cargo plane that is her usual mode of transportation.  The plane crashes and Robie is put into a raft by Max, the co-pilot.  Robie endures dehydration, starvation, panic and despair while trying to find things she needs to survive.  But will she be rescued in time?

This book was a gripping read.  The action was non-stop.  Robie was a strong female character--realistic in her moments of despair and wanting to give up but her strong will would not allow her to.  This book was a great read.

  1. It's not only a mystery, will she make it, it's an adventure.
