Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

I read this on Saturday while waiting for everyone to come back and rescue me from a freezing cold house. After I finished it, because it was a super quick read, I started reading another book, so now I have to remember all the things I wanted to talk about.
Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

On a trip to visit his father, 13-year-old Brian is the sole survivor of a plane crash in the Canadian wilderness. With only the clothes on his back and a hatchet he received as parting gift from his mother, Brian begins to shape a life for himself in the wild.

This book was extremely easier to read and I really enjoyed it. It felt like a real description of what would happen. Especially at the beginning when he first crash and how his body reacted and the mosquitoes. I would have done and reacted allot of the same ways Brian did. That was really nice because usually I hate reading about male characters, cause I can't understand a thing.

SPOILER....
The only thing that really annoyed me was the big secret. It wasn't that big of a secret. It's not like he walked in on her having sex with a man, not his dad. That would have made it a bigger deal for me. However I did understand his perspective on how the secret affect him and his life.

I probably won't read it again, but it was great for a short read. Oh, and it was definitely young young adult.
