This book is written by Gary Paulsen. This book is good. It's about a boy who is on a plane visiting his dad because his parents are divorced and the plane crashes in the woods so he has too survive in the woods by him self and pretty much the only thing he has is a hatchet. Some of the things he has to do to survive are gross. Some parts of this book are a bit boring. I think this book would be good for the age groups 11-14. This book was how I expected it too be but I as I was coming near the end I didn't expect the ending.
