Unsinkable

Author: Abby Sutherland and Lynn Vincent

Genre: Non-fiction, biography

Series: None

The stirring narrative of Unsinkable** tells 16-year-old Abby Sunderland’s remarkable true story of attempting to become the youngest person ever to sail solo around the world.

More people have flown into outer space than have sailed solo around the globe. It is a challenge so immense that many have died trying, and all have been pushed beyond every physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual limit. In Unsinkable, readers follow Abby Sunderland into those depths. This biography delivers a gripping and evocative firsthand account that starts prior to her departure, travels through her daring (and sometimes near-death) encounters on the open sea, to her dramatic rescue in the remotest corner of the Indian Ocean, and the media explosion that happened upon her safe return to dry land.

I had thought this book looked interesting, and it was… kind of. I found it all-around pretty mediocre – Yes, Abby did an incredible thing, and you know that it took bravery and guts. Her feat was incredible. But the book isn’t really worth the money.
