A riveting tale of a young man who takes his deceased uncle's sailing boat out beyond sight of the land, in order to fulfill a promise, and meets more than he ever imagined.

I'm tempted to give this one four stars. ( )

Interesting story - a very realistic depiction of being lost at sea. David isn't really a sailor - he's been out a few times, helping his uncle - when the voyage starts; he knows, more or less, what needs doing but it's not part of him. By the end, it is - he's a real sailor. He's extremely lucky several times, but it doesn't feel like author fiat, just the way things can happen. Some of the descriptions are amazing - a couple sunsets, in particular. Lovely story. ( )

Voyage of the frog is about a teenage boy named David whose grandfather had passed away and he was responsible for spreading his ashes. His grandfather had shown him how to navigate and how to sail. He never thought that he would have to deal with the challenges of what awaited him. He set off and started sailing in California. He had endur d many things, such as immense storms and huge waves on his small boat. Luckily when he arrives in Mexico he has already spread the ashes, but he still has to get back to California.

Why would you read this book? I would read this if you like adventurous books. This book has covered hundreds of miles from California to Mexico. I really liked this book because of all the inquiries within this book. I really liked this book because at some specific parts you just can't put it down. This book can make you feel like you're pat of the book. That's why I would read this amazing book. ( )
