The Raft by S.A. Bodeen

I’d like to thank Netgalley and Macmillan Childrens Publishing Corporation for letting me read an egalley of this.  First I have to say that I have enjoyed two of the books by this author, The Compound and The Gardener.  This book was also good, but a bit different.  Our main character is Robie.  Her parents […]
