Stephen Crane's THE OPEN BOAT meets THE BREAKFAST CLUB by John Hughes.

I have to give this book two stars just because the suspense of drowning, terror and dehydration keeps you turning the pages till the very end. But the characters in this book are so annoying, it's like Molly Ringwald from THE BREAKFAST CLUB meets Hadji from JOHNNY QUEST and all they do is talk and talk and swim and drown and talk and talk . . .
