What happened to him? Where are they? And what will they do when a terrible storm looms on the horizon?
So, this book was a little slow at getting started, i thought it was going to have a little about the before and then a little about while they were on the sea, but it was like 3/4 of the book. The last fourth was there time on the island and then their eventual rescue. That was my biggest pet peeve about it. I did like the ending though, there was a nice little plot twist there tucked into the last couple chapters. So that sort of made up for the dragging on of the other parts of the story. But i would say in the end, overall a good read. I would recommend it more towards boys though.
