I picked this book was short and looked like it was easy to read. I also like books that have action in them. I have read some of the author’s other books and they were good so I thought this one would be good to. It is good so far and I don’t absolutely hate reading it.
The River is a about a teenage boy named Brian who’s plane crashed in the Canadian wilderness and had to survive by himself. The government wants him to go back to the wilderness to do psychological test on him. They are wanting to no what was going on in his brain to help him survive. He is going with a man named Derrick who is going to do the studies on him while they’re out there. Derrick is going to use the data to help teach people like pilots how to survive if they were stuck in the same situation.
