Hatchet is about a boy named Brian who gets stranded in the middle of nowhere after an unsuccessful plane ride. He has to survive off his own instincts and find a way to get help. All he has is a hatchet that was given to him by his mother. Brian has to protect himself from the wilderness, and sustain himself with unknown foods. He endures harsh events like tornadoes and a scary experience with a moose. Desperate, Brian must find a creative way to get off the island. This book was a true page turner, because every time I thought Brian would not survive or give up, he pushed on. I sincerely recommend this book to readers who love adventure and survival books!
