Hatchet

Written by Gary Paulsen

In this book, a thirteen year old boy named Brian Robeson is on his way to visit his father. The pilot of the single engine plane that Brian is on has a heart attack. The plane crashes in the middle of nowhere. All Brian has now is a hatchet his mother gave him and his clothes. Will Brian survive? Will he ever get rescued?

I enjoyed this book. I liked it because there were a lot of surprises and it was exciting. My favorite part was when he finally makes a fire after trying so many times. I would recommend this book to someone who likes stories with adventure.
