Runaway Storm by D. E. Knobbe

Nathan is a runaway even though life isn’t too terrible for him. He has parents who care, but when their separation drives Nathan’s heart apart, he decides to steal his father’s kayak to fulfill his life dream. He kayaks day and night, battling rough storms and violent drug smugglers; meeting runaway friends along the way. Danger lurks in every corner in the uncharted string of islands off of San Juan, and the need for food, water, and safety is vital at this desperate point in Nathan’s life. Can he save himself and the Goth girl who saved his life? Or will he die trying?

I was very enthralled with Runaway Storm by D.E. Knobbe. It was very good, an easy read, although it was more of a leisurely read than an edge-of-your-seat thriller. I would recommend this book to any teenager who would like an informative and highly likable plot. Runaway Storm includes very good detail and action scenes that portray very believable scenarios. At the end of the book I was gripped with suspense and worry; tensions ran high I loved the elaborate detail, and was pleasantly surprised.
