    From what I’ve read so far it sounds interesting,Its kind of funny how Radford calls all the boys Archie and the girls Veronica. Well that is except for J.J. AKA “Richy Rich” Luke later gets smacked in the eye with a pulley courtousy of radford. Luke later gives Radford the nick name “Ratface” Radford sounds like a bit of a bully.

    first comment!
    i think shipwreck is a exciting book. i am on the part when the teacher is mad and yelling at the kids. As of right now it has been fun exciting and just plain awesome. I would recommend this book for kids who have a 8.0 reading level.

    I think that Shipwreck is an okay book for me so far. I can’t wait to get really into the book when the ship crashes and they are caught on the island. If you read this book, maybe it would be exciting for you.

    i think this book is amazing! and it is funny because, they all get nicknames like: Archie and Richie Rich. and the other thing is the captain is so nice and the mate is Mean! i recommend it because it gets you exited about some part!

    it think the part where there ship is about to crash in the water is scary. its weird because it says 10 foot waves. and all the kids are trying to be safe because they want to go home safe.

  7. isacc fazzio — October 10, 2012 @ 5:43 pm

    funny. i am laughing all the time when i read it lol. cant wait for the ship to crash.

  8. isacc fazzio — October 10, 2012 @ 5:43 pm

    this is super exciting i am laughing all the time when i read it lol. cant wait for the ship to crash.

    I liked the part where they almost died. They were all goofy, because they didn’t have any water or food. Some of them were unconscious and they were hallucinating. I was surprised when they found the island.

  10. kennedi roper — October 11, 2012 @ 7:40 am

    it was a great book i would recommend it if you want a easy read book. it is about a wreck and it is kinda like the titanic but they don’t crash in a iceberg.

  11. Chelsea Christensen — October 19, 2012 @ 1:17 pm

    wow the whole storm very intense poor Cascadden then Radford gets worse then he withdraws and becomes sullen then he abandons ship! then the ship blows up , now they are all in a tight fix no food no water, but then they find the island

    this book is awesome

    I think that the characters are going to be very interesting together later on in the boat. I hate j.j. already because of how bratty he is. I also don’t like Lyssa because she gets every thing she wants and she is a jerk to her brother.

  13. Parker Sewell — February 8, 2013 @ 5:07 pm

    I think that this story will be very good. I really hope it is. At the start they talk about a “she”. I think they are talking about a boat but. Im not sure.

  14. Marcos Gonzalez — February 10, 2013 @ 7:58 pm

    I think the book is kinda funny how they act. I think j.j. is stupid.I cant wait for the boat to wreck because so far its boring.

  15. Marques Padilla — February 11, 2013 @ 4:01 pm

    I think this book is good so far i like it, it is funny i am on page 30 i am alittle behind but i can make up i am like them i fight with my sisters all the time but we dont get sent on a boat to go somewhere far away. lol

  16. justin — February 12, 2013 @ 5:40 pm

    I like the book it is good. The book is good so far. I like the main charictar

  17. Levi Barlow — February 13, 2013 @ 9:17 am

    I think the book is good so far. Alot of explaining in like the first 12 pages. but that helps understand it better. I hate j.j he is just anoying.

  18. Ted Larsen — February 14, 2013 @ 6:32 pm

    This book has been awesome so far. I wonder who put the gun in Luke’s locker? There are still a lot of things that will hopefully be explained about all of the characters past’s.

  19. Kobe Davis — February 15, 2013 @ 2:33 pm

    I finished the book and it is great book. It got my mind vivid images of what was happening at all times. I feel bad for j.j. even though I hate him.

  20. Parker Sewell — February 15, 2013 @ 3:34 pm

    It has been a pretty good book so far. I thought it was funny how the kids were playing in the water. then i think JJ jumped off the rope and the Captain got really mads.

  21. Marcos Gonzalez — February 16, 2013 @ 8:14 pm

    I think the book is getting better as it goes. But the author makes it hard to understand well for me anyways. Although my siblings and I fight it is nothing compared to these six.

  22. Ted Larsen — February 17, 2013 @ 9:34 pm

    I wonder if the Captain is really dead? Or if he is just spying from a distance. I wonder what happened to Radford after he left the kids alone? It was good that they started working together but annoying that Will complained and then caused the explosion!

  25. karla arevalo — February 22, 2013 @ 10:16 am

    haha i love this look its fun to read i just keep asking my self nothing :)

  26. Parker Sewell — February 23, 2013 @ 11:11 am

    I dont think that the Captain is really dead. If these kids can survive in the water, why cant a grown man?

  27. Marcos Gonzalez — February 23, 2013 @ 12:58 pm

    I wonder what caused the explosion. Also whats going on with the captain. I am at the shipwreck part of the book.

  28. Marques Padilla — February 24, 2013 @ 9:08 pm

    Second comment. I like the book I am a little behind still but I will catch up I also wonder if the captain is really dead or just spying.

  29. Marques Padilla — February 24, 2013 @ 9:10 pm

    Third Comment. I am at the part where the ship has wrecked and they are on the island cant wait to get to the end of the story.

  30. justin D. jorgensen — February 25, 2013 @ 2:59 pm

    jj in the book just rast the sail. He away told not to. the book is relly good I like it.

  31. Levi Barlow — February 26, 2013 @ 8:52 am

    Second Comment. Im pretty far in the book but i wont if the captain is really dead. But if these kids can survive why would he die?

  32. Kobe Davis — March 3, 2013 @ 12:59 pm

    I like when they are on the raft and Ian starts hillucinating. Then the kids ask him what the side effects are when you are close to death and he says hillucination. then he goes look a whale and there was no whale.

  33. justin D. Jorgensen — March 3, 2013 @ 5:33 pm

    in the book the caiptain is dead. the kids survived . the book is good so far.

  34. Elijah Price — March 5, 2013 @ 6:04 pm

    FIRST COMMENT. I wonder who put the gun i luke’s locker?
    SECOND COMMENT. If the captain died then how did the kids survive?

  35. CJ Gittins — September 25, 2014 @ 12:42 pm
