it was amazing

I had originally given this 4 stars, but just read it with some fourth grade boys and saw how they almost ran down to my room everyday to read more, so I'm giving it an extra star now. Hatchet is a book that appeals to all, but at this time I only had boys in the group. They enjoyed talking about all of the things that Brian could do to (e.g., start a fire, catch fish, build a shelter), and then reading about how Brian did it. Definitely a good book for reluctant readers, and those who have trouble settling on a book.
