I liked this book because I learned more about sailing and I would like to be able to sail as an adult. Chris is an interesting character because she is a sailing expert at the age of fifteen. Can you believe that a girl knows so much about sailing at such a young age. I also think the main character should have been better prepared for his first trip. I would have taken a cell phone. It would be easier to get help if I got lost.
I recommend this book because it is not long and it was easy to read because it kept my interest throughout the story. I learned more about the Swallows and other types of boats. This book is a good book to read if you are interested in history because some of the story is based on a true story of the Swallows.
