My son said he read "How To Survive A Shipwreck" by Jonathon Martin & it really hit home for him. In fact, he said he cried at the end & that says a lot because he doesn't do that. I am going to get my own copy to read it. Here's a link to a bit about the book. https://books.google.com/books/about...d=C7TxCgAAQBAJ
