A new student review of Swim That Rock

muffin posted a new student review of Swim That Rock . See the full review.

I think this book is for readers who LOVE adventure! It is filled with humor and suspense.  The way the authors write this book makes you feel like you are part of the story.  While you are reading, if you close your eyes you can imagine what's going on. This book has an interesting cast of characters.  Jake is headstrong and likes to do things by himself. Jake’s friend Darcy works at the diner but she has a secret no one knows.  Jake’s mother is always worrying. Captain, is a strange man who tries to help Jake. Tommy, Jake’s best friend is committed to helping save the diner.

I LOVE how this book is told from Jake’s point of view because you can really understand how he feels.  I think that this book would be better if the language was a little cleaner, there is some “colorful” language. I would have liked more of an explanation about how his dad went missing.  The reader may be a little frustrated at the end when they are left with some unanswered questions.
