I loved this book in elementary school it was before the internet and I could never find the sequel to find out what happened Yay for Goodreads and the ability as an adult to find Book 2. Boy oh boy was I the target demographic when I first read this book It was such an adventure It presented such amazing opportunities I wanted to live on a beach and paint and collect shells and swim and feel salt drying on my skin and know a girl like Huzzy and be able to carry everything I owned in a Windswept tote bag This may have been the first time I was introduced to the concept of tote bags, come to think of it No wonder it had such an effect on me #Download Ebook Á Adrift! ê It was supposed to be one fun filled week sailing in the Bahamas Timid Libby, Allison the beauty queen, sisters Sarah and Annie, and Shawn the artist, each aboard the Sea Breeze with different expectations of the trip to come But none could foresee that this trip would become the greatest adventure of their livesHuzzy, their skipper, is an island girl, eager to show them the beauty and wonder of the place she calls homeBut without warning, the Sea Breeze is rocked by a violent storm Huzzy struggles to control the boat, when suddenly the rudder snaps, leaving them at the mercy of the wind What began as a vacation soon turns int a battle for survival for six young girlsadrift Autism and the God Connection: Redefining the Autistic Experience Through Extraordinary Accounts of Spiritual Giftedness Allison the beauty queen La Mina Lisa sisters Sarah and Annie Stepbrother Bastard (Hawthorne Brothers and Shawn the artist The Deniers: The World Renowned Scientists Who Stood Up Against Global Warming Hysteria, Political Persecution, and Fraud - and Those Who are Too Fearful to Do So each aboard the Sea Breeze with different expectations of the trip to come But none could foresee that this trip would become the greatest adventure of their livesHuzzy Ravishing Ruby their skipper Wipe Away the Tears is an island girl Fire With Fire eager to show them the beauty and wonder of the place she calls homeBut without warning One Thousand and One Arabian Nights the Sea Breeze is rocked by a violent storm Huzzy struggles to control the boat Viaţa şi moartea nefericitului Filimon when suddenly the rudder snaps The Greek Way leaving them at the mercy of the wind What began as a vacation soon turns int a battle for survival for six young girlsadrift This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This was 3 stars for the first half, 2 stars 3 4 of the way through but bumped back up to 3 stars by the end It s fine, though the ending leaves much to be desired like, I don t know, the second book in the series to continue finish the story.The setting is, for the most part, on a deserted island which Aber writes well enough I can believe and imagine the foliage, the sand and the ocean and see it in my head when she describes surroundings, especially when she does it through the eyes of Shaw This was 3 stars for the first half, 2 stars 3 4 of the way through but bumped back up to 3 stars by the end It s fine, though the ending leaves much to be desired like, I don t know, the second book in the series to continue finish the story.The setting is, for the most part, on a deserted island which Aber writes well enough I can believe and imagine the foliage, the sand and the ocean and see it in my head when she describes surroundings, especially when she does it through the eyes of Shawn, gazing upon the island dreamily The plot is good, despite a book 2 needing to be read for its conclusion It ends on a higher note after being mopey for a time I guess deserted islands do that to you and what the characters experience is believable enough throughout Speaking of characters, they re fine There s not a whole lot of character arc to be found, aside from Allison joining the group at the end, Libby not crying as much and Sarah losing her perceived perfect image because she cried Aside from that, there s not much I guess Shawn wanting to stay there can leading into book 2 where she ruins everyone s chances of leaving because she wants to stay there creating conflict in the group but that s just a guess It s a short book that s a teenage piece of Castaway, so if that s what you re after, go ahead and read it, just don t expect a satisfying conclusion at the end I d advise only read this if you have access to book 2 in the series Or if you want to add to your yearly books read of Goodreads I loved this book as a kid I read it when I was ten years old It was one of those trashy, easy reads that had no value other than entertainment But everyone needs those kinds of books every now and again. This came out in 1991, which is probably when I read it I ve been trying to remember it recently I loved reading about the adventures and friendship drama of these shipwrecked girls. It took me ages to find this book from vague childhood memories, huge nostalgia burst I m sure it s utter trash though Wanted to be Sarah, was probably Libby, nice book I woke up one morning with a strong desire to take a break from the real world I needed something that was short and simple, but I could still get completely lost in.I knew just the book, and despite it being one of my favourites as a kid, I hadn t read in a long, long time.A few weeks ago I was reading about an essay that theorised adult reading habits In effect, it identified everyone as being one of two types of readers those who read fiction because it s customary and somewhat classy to I woke up one morning with a strong desire to take a break from the real world I needed something that was short and simple, but I could still get completely lost in.I knew just the book, and despite it being one of my favourites as a kid, I hadn t read in a long, long time.A few weeks ago I was reading about an essay that theorised adult reading habits In effect, it identified everyone as being one of two types of readers those who read fiction because it s customary and somewhat classy to do so, and those who read fiction because they re disappointed with real life We form these habits in childhood, and it affects the way we personally view works of fiction for the rest of our lives the former kind has a healthy curiosity in life, the latter is far too sunk into the pleasures of narrative.As you may have guessed, I m the latter type Lost Girls Adrift was my favourite ever book as a kid, and reading it all these years later has finally made me realise the reason why A group of teenage girls being washed ashore a tiny island with no hope of rescue seemed to match the secret escapist dream I always kept in the back of my mind the entire time I was growing up.On the surface, the book seems to have a Baby Sitter s Club esque vibe Six very different girls, each assigned one word descriptions in the publisher s summary, are featured in a story aimed at tween females that is clearly trying to kick off a long term series.But there s a lotto the story than meets the eye, and it s the very reason I found myself sucked into the pleasures of fictional escapism all over again The characters are complex, and I found I could relate to every single one of them at varying levels I don t see this as a coincidence, and instead interpret it as the author s amazing ability to create a set of characters that every member of the target audience can relate to in some way The first girl, Allison, appears very shallow on the surface She cakes her face in make up and loves staring at boys, and the other girls tease her for it However, she s only like this because it s what her vain upper class mother teaches and pressures her to do, and she s never known any different.Sarah and Annie are sisters Sarah is older and perfect in every way, and Annie resents her for it Instead of antagonising a particular girl, I noticed that Williams Aber worked to show the good and bad sides of both of them Sarah means well, but can be too motherly and talks down to her sister, whereas Annie can be rude in response but has a desire to be her own person instead of living in the shadow of her older sibling.Libby is the stereotypically sensitive girl of the bunch Her parents died in a car accident a tragedy which she s still getting past and she cries her eyes out all the time and lives in constant fear However, this doesn t automatically make her an overly kind and compassionate person Shawn is characterised as the anomaly She s an indie chick with guys name and an interest in art, and seems quite happy with herself and her personality However, deep down she s disappointed in real life, and seeks to remove herself from it in every way and instead observe it from the outside looking in.Finally, Huzzy is the natural born leader An island native and the oldest of the group, she takes responsibly for the five girls who were placed in her care However, she s not perfect, and often becomes stuck when the others are relying on her.It might not have been the greatest story I ve ever read and it s not my favourite book like it was all those years ago, but I still felt close to every girl throughout the tale Around half of it covers the girls setting sail and getting to know each other, and the other half covers them getting shipwrecked and settling on the island The focus isn t on the events themselves, buthow each character handles them emotionally, making for an interesting tale that s easy to throw yourself into and not return until the sight of the back cover rudely reminds you that the real world you ve been trying to avoid hasn t gone anywhere And be warned, it ends on a cliffhanger, so you may just find yourself on eBay at 2am tracking down the sequel as I did many years ago I read this book originally as a child, probably in the late 90s I don t know what made me think of it again I had gotten rid of my copy but really wanted to re read it, remembering I really enjoyed the characters and plot the first time around Found it on an on line library and read it in one day Definitely as fun as the first time round A good young adult book Going to start the sequel now
