Title: The Explorer
Author: Katherine Rundell
Published September 12th, 2017

Fred, Con, Lila, and Max are on their way back to England from Manaus when the plane they’re on crashes and the pilot dies upon landing. For days they survive alone, until Fred finds a map that leads them to a ruined city, and to a secret.
At first glance, I believed that this book was about 4 individuals that found a plane in a forest. Since by the title “explorer” it made sense that these people would come across such a find in the middle of nowhere. By further examining the book I came across the summary “the plane they’re on crashes and the pilot dies. ”, wow isn’t that brutal?
Unfortunately, by finally making my way through half the book I had to put it aside and therefore I did not finish reading it. It might be because it is meant for a preteen to read but even if, the story lacks action, friendships, education, descriptions & page turners.
In conclusion, I give this book 0 stars.
