Luke, J.J., Will, Lyssa, Charla, and Ian.

They didn't want to be on the boat in the first place. They didn't want to be stuck at sea with a bunch of strangers. But when you're in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, there's no easy way out. And when a terrifying storm hits, there's no way to fully prepare. It's all about survival.

Gr 5-7-Six young teens with discipline problems are sent on a sea journey sponsored by a group called Charting a New Course, an organization designed to help troubled youths straighten out their lives. With only the captain and first mate to guide them, the teens work as the crew of the sailboat. When a terrible storm hits, the captain is lost at sea and the first mate abandons the kids once he realizes the ship is slowly sinking. The teens must work together to survive the storm and a shipwreck in the first book (Scholastic, pap. 2001) in Gordon Korman's trilogy. Holter Graham's suspenseful narration successfully portrays the tension between the characters and keeps the action moving.

Elena on
It was a very good book, to start out with. I really like it because it has a lot of adventure in it, and since i don't like to read a lot this was a really good book. I just couldn't put it down.
To summerize the story there are some kids on a boat because their parents or guardian wants them to get way from something. Some of the kids got sent on the trip because thier parents thought that they were watching too much TV. Other kids got sent there because they fought too much with thier siblings. Another kid got sent there because they were always getting into trouble at home. Finally the one kid got sent there because his principle found a gun in his locker at school(not to mention he was set up).
Well when they were in the middle of nowhere a violent storm came up. The captain was thrown overbaord and the first mate deserted them on the dingy that the boat had and took most of the food with him.
When the kids tried to get the engine back and running, it made the ship blow up.
Somehow one of the kids got on a raft and saved three other kids. They landed on a island nearly dead.
That is how the story ends. If you want to know what happens after that, you will have to read the other books. I suggest that you read this book. It is a book that you just can not put down.
