Questions

1. What was your favorite part of the Novel?


The best part of the novel is when Zach sneaks away to go to the crash site of his dad's plane. When he got there a man was sitting there saying that he expected him to be coming which was really odd. The man said how he knew everything about him and his dad and Zach was scared the man might do something.


2. If you could trade places with a character who would it be?


I would trade with Spence because he is the best at everything he does. Also he is a person that everyone looks up to when it comes down to toughness and athletic abilities.
