The Hatchet is a story about a 13-year old boy,Brian. After his parents divorce he decides to fly to visit his dad. As he is traveling in a single engine airplane, the pilot has a heart attack,leaving Brian in the canadian wilderness with nothing but a hatchet. Here he is forced to test his physical and mental strength to survive. On top of that, he has to bear the horrible secret that has been tearing him apart. One thing that I really like about this book is that it shows how he develops from being a normal boy who takes many things for granted to an independent, hardworking individual. I would recommend anyone to read this book because it shows multiple examples of creativity and ingenuity to survive.
