Guts: The True Stories behind Hatchet and the Brian Books
Hatchet is a great survival adventure story perfect for readers looking for a quick paced action packed read. This is a survival story about Brian, a 13 year old, who lives after the plane that he was on crashes into the Canadian wilderness. Brian has a hatchet that was given to him by his mother and he uses the hatchet to help him survive. I love this book. My grade 5 teacher told us that it was a must read book and I totally agree.
How many books have truly changed your life? I read this one when I was about 10 years old and it blew my mind. Before I read it I was one way and then after I read it I was another. And I stayed that way. I had never read anything so awesome in my young life. I'd read some stories with kinda scary stuff in them.
