If you ask me, the book hatchet was amazing; it was full of excitement. I recommend this book to everyone. In my opinion, Brian was very brave during his ordeal. He stayed focused as superb as he could and he tried his best to stay positive. Even though his parents are divorced and he knows the “secret”, he did not let his home problems interfere with him surviving. SPOILER: My favorite part was when Brian was rammed by a moose. Even though he was in pain, he did not freak out, instead he stayed focus on what was happening.
