Waiting on Wednesday: The Raft by S.A. Bodeen

For those of you who don't know "Waiting On" Wednesday is an event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. The purpose is to let others know which book you are anticipating and can't wait til it comes out to read it.

The Raft
The Rift by S.A. Bodeen
Pages: 231
Publisher: Fiewel & Friends
Pub Date: 8/21/12(Yesterday)


Robie is an experienced traveller. She’s taken the flight from Honolulu to the Midway Atoll, a group of Pacific islands where her parents live, many times. When she has to get to Midway in a hurry after a visit with her aunt in Hawaii, she gets on the next cargo flight at the last minute. She knows the pilot, but on this flight, there’s a new co-pilot named Max. All systems are go until a storm hits during the flight. The only passenger, Robie doesn’t panic until the engine suddenly cuts out and Max shouts at her to put on a life jacket. They are over miles of Pacific Ocean. She sees Max struggle with a raft.

And then . . . she’s in the water. Fighting for her life. Max pulls her onto the raft, and that’s when the real terror begins. They have no water. Their only food is a bag of Skittles. There are sharks. There is an island. But there’s no sign of help on the way.

Why I am Waiting:
Okay this book just came out yesterday and I really can't wait to get my hands on a copy. That synopsis sounds so good. A girl lost at sea with no sign of help on the way, now that is a book I want to read pronto. I really need to buy this soon. =]

Link me up in the comments to your WoW pick. =]

Thanks for visiting and Happy Reading.

  2. Interesting that this one is now out and Survive is coming soon too. Is there going to be a surge in "survival" books I wonder. Cool pick. Happy reading.

  3. This sounds good! I've been on a "trapped on an island" kick with books and movies recently! I'll have to add this one to my wish list.

    I really liked On the Island by Travis Garvis-Graves (I think,) if you're interested in more like Raft!

  4. ooh, I really enjoyed Castaway with Tom Hanks, and this sounds kind of similar. Survival is always interesting. Thanks for sharing!
