Shipwreck is the first book in the Island series by Gordon Korman. The book begins with 6 children on a boat, and it is revealed that this boat is a sort of juvenile detention on water. Each of the children has a different story and a different reason for being there, but all differences become forgotten when the boat gets shipwrecked and the children, abandoned by the first mate and captain, are left to survive the ocean on their own. A gripping story of survival. As a young teen i very much enjoyed this book and couldnt wait to read the rest of the series. Compelling book for children - your child won't be able to put it down.

These books are very good. I purchased them while teaching a reading course for 7th and 8th graders and I was very interested in the plot and characters--especially as they are written for the 11-15 year old crowd! They remind me of the Lost series on TV, so the plot isn't exactly new, but kids will love them.
