The Cay coverThis book takes place around the time of World War II. It involves a boy named Philip who one day goes on a boat back to Virginia with his mother. The boat sinks and the boy ends up surviving being trapped on an island with an African man and his cat. He then has to survive through starvation, thirst, and a hurricane, waiting for rescue.

I liked this book quite a bit. It was written very well. I found it very easy to get into and it was a pretty easy read.

I would recommend this book to others. I'm sure they would have a good and easy time reading it. People who would most like it would be ones that like the thought of surviving on a deserted island.
