The Compound Kindle Edition. The Raft: Ray Bradbury.
Robie loves traveling from the Midway Atoll where she lives with her parents, both researchers, to visit her aunt in Honolulu. She's taken the trip by cargo plane many times by herself, but when a storm hits mid-flight, Robie has to bail out in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
With the storm still pouring water over them, the plane's copilot, Max, inflates the emergency raft and drags Robie to safety. On the raft with a man she doesn't know, over hundreds of miles of ocean, her problems really begin. Survival means patching up the leaking raft, staying hydrated, and avoiding the tiger shark that's following her.
Eventually she must face the reality that rescue may not be coming. After days and days of torture on the open water, she washes up on the beach of an uninhabited island. Is this island her salvation or her final resting place? Fast-paced and intense, Robie's story has a tight grip on readers up to the very last page. What will stick with them are the choices Robie makes amid her grim reality and her determination to stay alive. There is nothing like losing everything to make you appreciate what you have, like parents who love you and clean drinking water.

Book Review: The Raft by S. A. Bodeen
Please try again later. Paperback Verified Purchase. This was required reading for my 11 year old son who hates to read. We each had our own copy so we could both read and then discuss it when done. He really enjoyed this book.
He not only finished reading before I did, he couldn't wait for me to finish reading the book so we could talk about.
What I like about it most is that the main character who fights for survival is a female. My favorite part of the book is Dear S. My favorite part of the book is when Robbie freaked out on having to jump out of the plane.
My favorite plot of the book is the narrative hook, technical climax, and the falling action. I enjoyed the narrative hook because she introduced Robbie well and gets people wanting to know what goes on in her life.
The technical climax is also good because it's the turning point in the story and they is when Robbie is flying and then ends up having to leave the plane so that was a good twist. The character I liked the most was Robbie the main character in the book. She was a very believable character because he was in tough situations. She inspires me because she was a very hardworking person doing all she can in the raft to survive.
The Raft Summary & Study Guide Description
The author's style was very good because it was adventurous. In the book she puts in tons of irony and one was situational irony were I would know what was going to happen but the characters did not.
For example, I knew that she was going to have to jump out of the plane but she didn't.
Also, another type of style she used was POV and in the book she used first person point of view showing Robbie's thoughts, feelings, and actions while in the book. Finally, in the book she uses a little personification to show the water and other nonliving things that act like humans. Finally, the theme of this book is to never give up and keep trying.
I learned that if you give it your all and try the best you will succeed. The life lesson i got from this story is to keep trying even through the hardest times. She sees Max struggle with a raft. And then. 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. The dude with the lime-green Mohawk and dark wooden plugs in his earlobes looked down at me, the long silver needle in his rubber-gloved hand pointed directly at my face. They have a bag of candy and very little water between them. Bodeen creates a hair-raising suspense storyb that will have readers agonizing over the same question as Robie — how long can they survive?
That I will jump on. When the plane Robie is on starts to go down, Max the co-pilot throws her out, saving her life, and gets her on the raft.
After that Robie and Max are left to float around in the warm waters of the Pacific without any food, water, or way to contact land.
Review: The Raft by S. A. Bodeen
Like Robie, the thing that would freak me out the most about being stuck on a raft in the middle of the ocean would be the sharks. Robie is not someone I would want to be alone on a raft with. She was kinda annoying — even though I should probably remember that she is fifteen years old and being whiny and annoying is required.
When Robie and Max make it to the island is when Bodeen lost me.She's no survival expert though she knows a bit more about biology than the average person thanks to her unique upbringing , and she makes so many mistakes with only her instincts, memories, and imagination to guide her survival.
I mean, really, we read the synopsis of the book and already know the plane is going to crash.
I didn't think I was going to like our main character at first, but her survival skills or lack of I could identify with. THEN Robie lays her head on his shoulder in the next chapter. Die sind zwar wenig aber meiner Meinung nach genau richtig. The only passenger, Robie doesn't panic until the engine suddenly cuts out and Max shouts at her to put on a life jacket and she sees him struggle with a raft.
