STUDENT REVIEW- Hatchet by Gary Paulson

By Gary Paulson
Published by Simon & Schuster Books For Young Readers, 2007
192 pages (paperback)

On his way to visit his recently divorced father in the Canadian mountains, thirteen-year-old Brian Robeson is the only survivor when the single-engine plane crashes. His body battered, his clothes in shreds, Brian must now stay alive in the boundless Canadian wilderness.
More than a survival story, Hathcet is a tale of tough decisions. When all is stripped down to the barest essentials, Brian discovers some stark and simple truths: Self-pity doesn't work. Despair doesn't work. And if Brian is to survive physically as well as mentally, he must discover courage.

The best thing was when I found out how many days Brian survived. [I wish there had been] more pages! Yes, [I would recommend this book to a middle schooler] because they can learn how to survive in the wilderness.
--Neel P.

It made me want to keep reading it more and more. This book was one of the best books I have ever read. It was a detailed and an adventurous book. There is nothing that could be improved in this book. Yes [I would recommend this book to a middle schooler] because you will get hooked on it so quickly that you won't want to stop.
--Tashun R.
