I liked this book because it has a lot of action and adventure in it.I also liked it a lot because it is about a boy that was flying in a plane when it got hit by a tornado and everyone died but him. and he gets stranded on land and has to survive the winter with a bow and arrows,a shotgun,an ax, some cloths and some frozen food.With all that he has to survive the winter.
