The Raft had my attention from beginning to end. The Raft is a quick read, following Robie as she survives at sea after a devastating plane crash. Robie is very relatable and easy to follow. She is independent, hopeful, and resourceful. Robie also has a care for the environment and animal welfare. You can still relate to Robie, even as her mental state starts to diminish.
This book will catch the attention of any reader from beginning to end. It reminded me of my time in Oahu, the fear on every turbulent plane ride, and those moments of sheer determination in an emergency situation.
