            this book is really interesting I liked it and I decided to talk about it because its one of my favorite books of I survived this was the most interesting part that I think was most fasinating of all was when Chet was making his prank because the other boys pranked him.

                    loved the book. My favorite part is when he scared his friends. Short read. This series was very detailed. Can't wait to finish series.

                      I SURVIVED THE SHARK ATTACKS OF 1916 is a very intense book. This book is about a little boy named Chet, he moves to live with his uncle over the summer, some unbelievable things happen, To be honest I don't think this book has any weaknesses.
