Hi, my name is Arthur. I would like to tell you what the basics of this book are. First, if you have ever heard that saying, "you can't tell the book by it's cover," well, with this book you can! If you're the type of person who likes action adventure, horror, and there's even a little bit of drama, then this book if for you. When your ship wrecks and you swim to a deserted island with not one person within hundreds of miles, what would you do? That's another mystery you will have to find out in this great novel.  (Arthur, student, Musselman Middle School. Bunker Hill, WV
