Sharks & Boys Book Review

Sharks & Boys
Kristen Tracy

            When 15 year-old Enid Calhoun follows her boyfriend Wick to a party, because she fears that he might be intending to cheat on her, she finds herself sneaking on board a houseboat where her boyfriend and his friends plan to have a crazy night. But before the boys can have any fun, a hurricane strikes, and the teenagers are carried many miles away from the shore and are shipwrecked. Four sets of twins, that know each other very well since they are a part of a study together, are on a deadly adventure in a horribly realistic but comical tale. When the boat goes down and they are left with only a plastic raft, the reality turns increasingly deadly .What follows is a story of survival as the teens battle sharks, dehydration, their darkest secrets and even themselves to stay alive. Will Wick and Enid get back together? Will they all stay alive?

            This book was the most interesting one that I have ever read. I could not put the book down. It was very good and I always wanted to know what was going to happen at the end of the chapter. Kristen Tracy always kept the reader on their toes and left them hanging to read more. The writing was easy to understand and there were few words that I could not comprehend. This book will make you think about life and how fragile it is. I would recommend this book to anyone who is in middle school or up. While the book has semi-happy moments, most of the book is filled with pain and sadness. If you liked reading The Hunger Games or Lord of the Flies I would read this as well because it is a similar read. For anyone who likes adventure and survival this is defiantly the book for you!     Emma B; Teen Reviewer
