    The story is about a 13 tear old boy names Brian Robenson. He is going to see his father in Canada. The plane that he is riding in the pilot has a heart attack and dies.
    The plane crashes into the water. He swims up to the suface of the water because there was a whole in the planes window. He has to go through a lot of stuff like hunger,animal attacks even a tornado. The sun makes his face peel off and turn red.
    He drinks a lot of water until his stomach is massively swollen. I predict that someone will come and help him.

    In the story was about a boy named Brian Robenson.
    He’s parents was going threw a devorce and he was
    not happy because he did not know which of he’s
    parents that he was going to be with.

    Then they was going to the court room to see what
    the judge is going to do. The judge said during the
    summer time that he would be with he father and
    during the school year he would be with his mother.
