it was amazing

I just can't say enough good things about this book! I have a fear of two things, heights and water. I have to be sedated heavily before getting onto a plane! ; ) When I was reading this I almost had a panic attack...I felt my heart race and my breathing became erratic, BUT that goes to show you how well this book was written.

So for the review...I didn't know how I was going to feel about this one. I knew kind of where the direction this book was going when I started to read it, but I didn't think I would've loved it as much as I did. We have two people a sixteen year old boy, and a thirty year old woman, trapped on an the middle of God knows where. Are they going to get off or die? And then you wonder who's going to die first, and leave the other all alone...eek! That is some scary s**t! I found myself turning the page wondering when they’d be rescued, if at all. My thought processes was all over the place with this one. I felt all the emotions T.J. and Anna felt. How scared the must have been, how scared I was for them. The days turned into weeks, weeks turned into…I’m not going to tell you, you’ll just have to read and find out! Great book, I highly recommend this one, but don’t read it if you’re flying…trust me!
