    Hatchet, Gary Paulsen In this novel, Brian’s plane crashes, leaving him alone in the wilderness with only his hatchet to rely on, staying alive on his wits and this one archaic tool. Okay, we learned some survival skills, but we can’t even bring hatchets on planes anymore. We can’t even bring Swiss army knives! This book just reinforced our feeling that we would probably die if stranded in the wilderness for 54 days. Sigh. Young Adult books that scarred us for life
