Hatchet is an astonishing survival book! As you read, you will find that it is about a thirteen year old boy named Brian Robeson that got stranded in the wilderness with nothing but himself and the hatchet that his mom gave him. I would definitely recommend this book! I however, would not recommend this book to you if you are into fantasy fiction because this is a realistic fiction book. Read this wonderful book if you want to learn about all of the crazy challenges that Brian faces!
