Sharks and Boys (Kristen Tracy)

Cover Image


When 15-year-old Enid Calhoun follows her boyfriend Wick to Maryland for a party, fearful that he might be intending to cheat on her, she finds herself sneaking on board a houseboat where Wick and his friends plan to have a wild night. But before the boys discover their stowaway, a hurricane strikes, and the teenagers are carried miles from the shore and shipwrecked. What follows is a harrowing, yet heartwarming, story of survival, as the teens battle hypothermia, dehydration, man-eating sharks--and along the way, confront their own deepest secrets, including their catalytic roles in the disaster.


This book made me sick, I was completely distraught by the goings- on in the story and completely disgusted with her boyfriend and the very last bit of the ending. However, over all it was a pretty alright read, but I will never read this book ever again. I’d say probably a paperback copy and not for the faint of heart so probably a mature 12 or 13.
