I completely agree, this book is AMAZING!!! I was kinda sad when the book was ending because it is such a great book. I am in awe of Allie because she left her best friend for a boy who she didn't like. I REALLY recommend this book...again AMAZING!!!
This book was the best!!! I absolutely LOVED it. it tells about a girl who's father was the chief before he died. People from an island came to rescue them. the girl got left behind because her brother was not on the boat. they looked for ways to survive, but her brother died. The dogs on the island killed him and she vowed to kill them too. after a few years, she makes a house for herself and other materials needed. finally, she makes peace with a dog and names him after her brother. she makes a human friend who soon leaves, but she is fine with it. after 18 years she sees a boat meant to take her to a different place and she goes. before she died she got baptized and got the name Maria. she died of an illness of food. she was so used to making food on her own when others tried to make food for her, he got sick. she died with only being 9 months on the island. she was buried at the side of the church with an unmarked grave, where she is to this day
