Robie travels a lot, especially from Hawaii to the Midway Atoll (a group of Pacific islands) where her parents live. However, Robie will soon find out that the cargo flight she boards at the last minute will be nothing but ordinary.
Chaos breaks out when a storm hits and the engine suddenly cuts out. The copilot Max instructs Robie to put on her life jacket and she sees him struggle with a life raft.
And then all of a sudden they're in the water, fighting for their lives. Max pulls her onto the raft and that is when the real struggle begins. They have no water and only a bag of skittles for food. The waters are also infested with sharks and there is no sign of help on the way. Will help ever come and will it be in time if it does?
This is a fast paced thriller that you will not be able to put down.
