Book Review- Avi- Windcatcher

Avi- Windcatcher (Avon Books 1992) 3.75 Stars

Tony has just bought his first small sailboat and he is going to stay with his grandma for a couple of weeks to learn how to sail. While out sailing he comes across a couple in a motorboat hunting for a long lost treasure. Curiosity gets the better of him, and he finds himself following the couple around. When he finds himself lost and confused out in the water, the couple is too busy searching for their treasure to help him. Will he ever find land? Or will the couple prevent him from ratting them out?

The introduction was great; it sets the tone for the rest of novel beautifully. It did slow down for a while, but I was still curious to see just how or if he would find the treasure. The setting was well done, painting a wonderful picture. The characters were decent. I would have liked to have seen a little more depth to all the characters except the main, he was well done. The plot was good, although could have been tweaked a little, and wasn’t unpredictable in any way. I still found it to be a good read; kids would enjoy it.
