Hatchet by Gary Paulsen
reviewed by Tinsae

If you would like to know how to survive in the wilderness, read Hatchet.

This book is about a teen named Brian Robeson, age 13, who had a tough life
after his parentsí divorce. He could only visit his father — in Canada — during the summer and lived with his mother during the school year.

He was on a plane to go to his father's home when it crashed in the Canadian
wilderness and he was the only survivor. Brian struggled to feed himself and find
shelter in his two months alone in the wilderness.

I never wanted to let go of this book and I strongly recommend it to anyone who likes a good adventure.

[Librarian's Note: Gary Paulsen wrote several sequels to Hatchet, as well as many other superb books.]
