Alone

Thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is on his way to visit his father when the single engine plane in which he is flying crashes. Suddenly, Brian finds himself alone in the Canadian wilderness with nothing but his clothing, a tattered windbreaker, and the hatchet his mother has given him as a present — and the dreadful secret that has been tearing him apart ever since his parents' divorce. But now Brian has no time for anger, self-pity, or despair — it will take all his know-how and determination, and more courage than he knew he possessed, to survive.

Synopsis:

After a plane crash, thirteen-year-old Brian spends fifty-four days in the wilderness, learning to survive with only the aid of a hatchet given him by his mother, and learning also to survive his parents' divorce.

If you like books like trying to survive in a forest, Hatchet, is a good book for you!
Brian the main character, has parents that are recently divorced. Brian’s plane crashes on his way to see his Dad for the first time in a long time. He only has a hatchet that his Mom gave him before he left. Some days are bad, some days are good, and some days are terrible. He crashed in the summer, but that means that he might not survive the winter.
Now that you know about the the story a little, now I will tell you if you will like it or not. If you like sad at some parts and happy for other parts it is good for you. If you like action it is good for you. If you like a book that you just can’t stop reading it is good for you. Now lets talk about me. I like this book because it is very descriptive and a thriller, bears, no food and scary weather. This will be a great book to read and I recommend it to you!
