Book Spotlight! The Raft

The Raft by S.A. Bodeen is a book that is perfect for those older readers that like a good survival book. With some intense scenes, and the truth of mortality this book is a great read for those in an older age range, a mature 10 and up. This book kept me eager to read more and was fast paced, especially for a book about a girl surronded largely by nothing but water. With a surprise ending that is not to be missed, this book is a great story of what it takes to survive.
"Robie is an experienced traveler. She’s taken the flight from Honolulu to the Midway Atoll, a group of Pacific islands where her parents live, many times. When she has to get to Midway in a hurry after a visit with her aunt in Hawaii, she gets on the next cargo flight at the last minute. She knows the pilot, but on this flight, there’s a new co-pilot named Max. All systems are go until a storm hits during the flight. The only passenger, Robie doesn’t panic until the engine suddenly cuts out and Max shouts at her to put on a life jacket. They are over miles of Pacific Ocean. She sees Max struggle with a raft. And then . . . she’s in the water. Fighting for her life. Max pulls her onto the raft, and that’s when the real terror begins. They have no water. Their only food is a bag of Skittles. There are sharks. There is an island. But there’s no sign of help on the way."
