    I loved this book it means a lot to me because my dad died to a shark bite while he was suffering. so for me to read this book and see that other people have went to most of the things that I have that made me feel really good. this book also inspired me to surf again after my dads passing. this is why I loved this book!!!!!!! I think anyone who reads this book will love it just like I do................................

        It was awesome at the ending. My favorite part was that Neal's friend saved him from a shark in the water.

                    This book is about a boy named Chet who may not survive a shark. I enjoyed this book because of action. If you like excitement you will like I Survived.-Theryn
