Brianna Hull | 3 comments I really liked your review. It was good and very detailed. I enjoyed the plot. This is a book I would definitely read. It seems to have a very simple plot. But you did make the plot seem so much better than what it actually was. I have one question though, who would you recommend reads this book?

Crystal | 3 comments This review makes me wonder what happens after the family is saved and has to adjust to life in Canada. I am curious to know how his father died. Did he die in a sailing accident? or had he passed away randomly? Those thoughts are making me think very hard. I wonder how Greg could move on from his fathers death and still go on with life. It must have been tough. This book is something I would definitely read in the future. It is about travel and that is something I love.
