Customer Review - The Raft

The Raft
by S.A. Bodeen [YA Bodeen]

This book was recommended to my by Sarah D. at Gere Branch, when we were talking about another book we had read in the teen summer book group by the same author. We had read The Compound by S.A. Bodeen, and I enjoyed that book so much I decided to read The Raft. The main character Robie gets stranded in the Pacific when the plane she is on crashes, en route to her home on Midway Island. I was skeptical about this book because this route has been taken by many other authors and can seem repetitive since it has been, however, I was disproved quickly. Much like The Compound, the book moves at a fast pace, but not so fast that you can't keep up and get lost. The story line is solid and pleasing. I would highly recommend this read to any young adult looking for a quick and good read. -- review submitted by Alex A. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
