War has always been a game to him, and he’s eager to glimpse it firsthand–until the freighter he and his mother are traveling to the United States on is torpedoed.When Phillip comes to, he is on a small raft in the middle of the sea.

Someone just reminded me of this book...I read it like ten times when I was a kid. Can't promise it's actually as good as I thought it was at the time, but man did I love it back then.

I'm fairly certain it was elementary school when I read this - can't remember anything about it though.

Gaaaah. Hated it. Had to read it for seventh grade english class. I couldn't stand the main character; he was such a brat. the end of the book was sooo predictable. the only good character was the cat. haha
