Waiting on Wednesday

The Raft
The Raft by S.A. Bodeen
Hardcover231 pages
Expected publication: August 21st 2012 by Feiwel & Friends
Robie, 16, lives with her family on the Midway atoll, a group of islands in the middle of the Pacific. Her parents are scientists; it’s an isolated life. Robie enjoys visiting her aunt in Hawaii – she gets back and forth on a cargo plane that brings supplies to Midway. 
During a visit, her aunt is called to the mainland for a work emergency, leaving Robie to get home on her own. On her flight back to Midway the cargo plane hits nasty weather, and goes down. It’s just Robie, the pilot, and Max, a co-pilot she’s never met till this flight, on board. Robie is pulled aboard a raft by Max, who is injured and slipping in and out of consciousness. They have a bag of candy and very little water between them. When they finally reach an island that seems abandoned, Robie hopes they’ll be found quickly. But she’s not sure she was even on the flight manifest. Her parents must be looking for her…aren’t they? 
In THE RAFT, S.A. Bodeen creates a hair-raising suspense story that will have readers agonizing over the same question as Robie -- how long can they survive?
I can't wait for this. Me + survival books= love/hate relationship. I really want to love each and every book about survival that I come across, sadly it isn't always the case. But I am really looking forward to this one because it sounds amazing.

What do you guys think? 


  1. This one definitely looks super cool! Great pick :)

  2. Not only does the cover look awesome, but the idea sounds intriguing. Either it's going to be action-packed with danger and survival, or boring since I agree with you on survival books. But I still can't wait to read this one. Great choice!

    Here's my Waiting on Wednesday!
