Robie's on another flight from Honolulu to Midway Atoll, going between her aunt and her parents, something she's done dozens of times. But this time, it's different. First engine trouble, then a crash into the ocean, and Robie and Larry the copilot are the only ones alive. They have a raft, a bag of Skittles, some flares, and not much else. Robie is used to being taken care of by others, but Larry is practically comatose, and Robie has to take care of herself and make hard decisions in order to survive. There are dangers in the ocean. There are dangers of the sun and of dehydration. There is even danger when the raft drifts to an island. Will Robie keep her will to survive, do what she needs to do to stay alive, and be rescued?
