I liked this book because it was an adventure and adventures keep me reading. I never knew what was going to happen next. My favorite part was when Stanley told a story to the boys. That gave me a big jumpstart! It gave me more predicting fuel. There was a character named X-ray, he reminded me of my friend Cameron because they?re both stubborn. This book is like the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen because it?s about a boy who?s stranded in the middle of nowhere just like in this book. I felt sad for Stanley because he got accused and now he has to take the punishment of digging holes.
I think other people, including grown-ups, would definitely want to read this book because it is so powerful. The author helps you know all the characters' feelings during the story.
