The Raft

By: S.A. Bodeen

Before the plane crash.

Robie travels from Honolulu to Midway. She was in Honolulu to visit her aunt AJ and Midway is a island where her parents live. When she has to get to Midway in a hurry and after a visit with her aunt in Hawaii, she gets on the next cargo flight at the last-minute because she was scared because she was alone.

In the ocean.

She knows the pilot, but on this flight there’s a co-pilot named Max. A storm hits during the flight. Robie didn’t panic until the engine cut off and Max tells her to put on a life jacket. They are over the Pacific Ocean. She saw Max get a raft. And then she’s in the water fighting for her life and then Max pulls her onto the raft. Max died the day after the plane crash.

On the island.

They got on an island and right when they got there Robie went through a reef surrounding the island. Robie is getting lighters to make a fire. People are on a research on the island and took Robie home.

Connections I made.

Text to self- 1. When she got harassed she ran in the hotel and locked the doors and once I was playing basketball outside and I saw someone running wearing all black and I ran inside and locked all the doors.


Text to Text- 2. In the Maze Runner everyone was fighting for their life just like Robie.

3. Robie tried to save the Hawaiian monk seal like they saved the dolphin in Dolphin Tale.

4. In Journey to a Mysterious Island they had a plane crash just like Robie and "Max".


Text to world-5. They got in a plane crash and so did the people from the 1987 Indianapolis plane crash.
