This book is very interesting. If you like islands and what to do about suviving on it with just you and your friends, then i recommend this to those. In shipwrecked there are alot of conflicts. I like The smart kid Arnney the most because he watches the discovery channel alot and knows what to do. I didnt like the dark skinnedgirl. She had a bad atitude and snotty. If this book was made into a movie i would love to act out Andrew. You arnt reallt able to to predict what happens in the end. I think its the whats going to happen if they get recued question kept me going. It kept me in a whats going to happen feeling. My favirote line has to be by Andrew "What is your problem dude, Are you special ed or something?" The scene when they enetered the island they had really no idea about eachother. I think the author wrote this book because his imagonation was based on kids who were bad or had problems get sent to an island for survival with other students they dont know with the same problems as them. This book kinda reminds me of saw the movie. I don’t know how to explain the real or main exact reason for such an insane book written in the mystery way. I loved this book a whole whole lot. There is a series of these kind of books. The island shipwrecked is the blue one, the green one is well cant remember and there a red one. There are only three. I havnt read three yet but im planning on it. I heard three is the biggest one of all three like there is a huge twist at the end. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Lori Great book Kara. It reminds me of the classic book - Lord of the Flies - have you heard of it. You should read it, or at least a summary of it. It is also about a group of kids on an island together.

Grade 90 - you have several grammar mistakes (that I think you could have noticed IF you would have proofread), but you have expressed good ideas in answer to the questions - oh, did you answer all 10? Did you say what captured your attention? Did you say what emotions you felt as you read?

Have a great weekend! Be nice to the sub on Monday!
