The Raft Research

By: Grant McCoy

Before the plane crash

Before the plain crash fifteen year-old Robie has always been told that she is lucky ,she’s lucky that she gets to live on the Midway Atoll with her National Geographic photographer friends and scientist parents, lucky she does not have to go to regular school or do regular homework, lucky that she gets the experience of growing up in a beautiful,tropical island. But she hasn’t really felt luck, she sees life on Midway as a great experience, but she’s over a thousand miles away from the closest stretch of civilization, she has barely any interaction with other kids her age, and the tiny atoll has just 4 TV channels, as well as a spotty phone and internet connection. So, when Robie gets the chance to spend the summer with her cool young Aunt AJ in Honolulu, she’s thrilled to spend time lounging by the pool, catching up on all the tv shows she’s missed, and getting her nose pierced without her parents around. When her aunt has to leave town for a week, Robie even manages to convince her to stay unattended in AJ’s condo......


in the ocean

Robie was wanting to get home.So she got on plane a surprise storm hits mid-flight, and everything goes wrong. The engine dies. The plane plummets. And even though she manages to miraculously survive the crash and get in an emergency life raft, she’s alone in the middle of the ocean with the gravely injured co-pilot, with no food and no water. And no one even knows she’s gone so now her parents think she is honolulu but she is out in the middle of the ocean with one guy and nothing much to eat and no water


on the island

She found an island and she was safe she knew now she could try and do a signal fire and try and signal for rescue.But as the days go on she finds that she wants to live the island.She finds that there is no hope because all of her friends dies.But then there is a little bird and she thinks that it is not going to live very long.As the bird fly's out it lived. That was her hope of living.she has fight in her she wont die. The next day she sees a ship and her first thought was that it was not real and that she is going insane. But it turns out that it was real and she was saved.
