Overall, my students did not feel that this book really met their needs as readers. They struggled with relating to characters that were developed minimally. For example, Mai seems to jump back and forth between loving and hating Kien due to small actions on Kien's part. She forgives him quickly and returns to despising him pages later. There seems to be no feasible reason for this switching besides the contrived plot. Speaking of the plot, my students found it extremely predictable and a little sappy at the end. Overall, not a bad book for lower level readers, but do not expect to be thrilled by this story.

I am 9 years old and I really loved this Vietnamese story. It paints a lot of pictures in my mind. It has a lot of exciting parts but no like Harry Potter where there's only one suspensful part...this book has it throughout the whole story. I felt like I was in the jungle and out at sea. I think this book is actually better for kids 9 and up. I also thought it was easy to read.
