The book “The Hatchet”, is about a boy named Brian, his parents are divorced and he goes on a flight to visit his father. However the plane crashes where he is in the middle of nowhere. He has to survive in the wilderness in order to be able to found soon. Brian uses mostly his hatchet to try to survive. But he has to be strong and courageous in order to survive, if he loses hope, then that means death for him. In the end it’s up to him to save himself or not save himself. I like this book a lot because I think it displays how to not take what you have everyday for granted, and it shows how you should be grateful for everything you have. I recommend this for teenagers, because I think teenagers tend to take what they have for granted because they get caught up in other things, and it also teaches them survival skills which I think are important.
