A Book review of Zia

Zia is a fourteen-year-old living at the Santa Barbara mission in California. She is brave and she has a striving wish to save her aunt, Karana, from the loneliness of the Island of the Blue Dolphins. She and her brother, Mando, then try to rescue their dear aunt, but they have many obstacles ahead of them.
As exciting as this book may sound, it did not really capture my attention. Although Zia was the main character, the author did not reveal very much of her personality, which would've added much to the story. Other characters also lacked unique traits of themselves. Also, while reading the story, I sometimes got confused because the storyline swerved and it went to a different subject. Most of the book was also pretty much boring. There were a few parts that I really did enjoy, but hose came only a few times.
In the end, Karana is saved, but she dies because she missed her real home on the island. This book did not fit my idea of a good book, but that's only my opinion. I think that people who enjoy action and an exciting plot would not really like this book, but those who like more realistic and girlish books would definitely like this.

    Shameful

    This book did absolutely no justice to Island of the Blue Dolphins. It took me 6 months to read this book because I didn't want to pick it up. Island of the Blue Dolphins took me a few hours to read. It's so boring and a sad exucse for a book.
