S.A. Bodeen’s most recent novel, The Raft, keeps her readers on the edge. Robie is trying her best to get back home to a small island called Midway a little early. When she boards the small plane she finds out there is the regular pilot and a substitute co-pilot named Max. The plane ultimately crashes into the waters in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The only survivors are Robie and Max and they have to endure the harsh conditions of floating on a yellow raft under the hot sun and cool nights. Their biggest threats are starvation and the dangerous sharks that lurk in the ocean. Will their arrival onto the island make things better? Read The Raft to find out. I could not put this one down! I loved The Compound so I couldn't wait to read this one.
