    " A bit slow at the beginning but it picked up. Now at the end of it I want to know what happens next and I don't own book II - I'll have to go to the library on Monday. "

    " Six kids are sent to Guam to board a boat together to spend a month at sea as punishment for something they have done in their lives. For one, it is possessing a firearm at school. Another spends all his time watching TV and cannot break free from the electronic world. A third is a world class athlete who has spread herself too thin to be successful at one thing. The fourth is a rich LA kid who causes problems and doesn't realize the consequences of his actions. The last two are a brother and sister who cannot get along with each other. Together on the SS Phoenix, these six learn about work, getting along and ultimately survival. The first in a trilogy. "

    " don't get on ships or boats,they might just sink "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kaden | 12/21/2013

    " It was a short and slow book. I don't really like the story line. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alison | 12/16/2013

    " Great book for Middle school level. Fast paced and adventurous book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia | 12/5/2013

    " It had a little fluff in it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake R | 12/2/2013

    " this is a great book series and you should def. read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan Rodgers | 11/18/2013

    " An entertaining adventure story that will mostly appeal to 4th through 6th graders. I think Korman could have kept it all as one book instead of splitting into three titles, but I do see how the shorter look of each novel appeals to reluctant readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lilhanni | 6/12/2013

    " I read it when I had chicken pox and could not put it down. Amazing story of how these kids survive the shipwreck. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Grace | 5/18/2013

    " WOW.... did not see that one with mister radford coming "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 4/11/2013

    " Kid's book, interesting enough. Some of them might get caught up in the sailing vocab., but I think it is suspenseful enough for upper elem. students. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katy | 2/24/2013

    " Not one of my favorites. Confusing at times, too many characters, major cliffhanger at the end (I guess to force you to keep reading) and undeveloped I feel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ashley | 12/12/2012

    " Near the beginning it was slow but then near the end of the book it really started to pick up. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ash | 12/2/2012

    " I could read it over an over a agin "

    " Perfect for 4th grade reading! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/5/2012

    " It isn't great literature, and far from his best writing, but fast-paced and very high interest. Particularly good as read alouds to reluctant middle school readers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph H | 8/31/2012

    " I thought it was a great and amazing start to the very good and suspenseful,Island Series. It was great because it told the background of all the people on the boat that gets sunken and makes you think that the people it tells about are living, breathing people. I would reccomend it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Heather | 10/10/2010

    " Go Gordon Korman! As in his Everest trilogy, he introduces his characters quickly and throws them headfirst (headlong?) into tension, conflict, and (mis)adventure. I enjoyed recommending this one to one of my stronger readers, and I'm looking forward to finding out what happens next. "
