more survivals for me! this book wasn’t as fun as the first one—the book seemed less immediate than hatchet. maybe because of the way it was presented; as a “what if,” rather than a regular story, the stakes seem lower, even though it is exactly the same. it’s more like a writer’s exercise than a proper story. or maybe i am reading too many woodsy type books too closely together. i will pause now and get on with my summer of classix. teeny books, get thee behind me!
