This book is AWESOME!!
Hi!! I'm Caylin (aka KK:D) and I read the book Stowaway very lately actually. I am 11 years old and I just LOVED this book. I don't really want to write about the ending or whatever because you don't want to spoil a good ending!! So, if you want to know more about this book, go to google and type in Karen Hesse and search Stowaway! Thanks, KK:D
It is cool and smart reading.
This is a great book that many young adults can relate. There are times when Nicholas is feeling down, happy, in pain, and more. Kids nowadays look for something that things have in common. This will let people know that they aren't alone out there in the world. It also gives you a terrific abundance of facts. It may not occur to the reader, but if they are interested in where they are in the book they will want to know what it looks life in real life. So that's all I can say for now. READ the book.
It is so boring and un-amusing for those of us who are above the reading level. It is extremely detailed and it just keeps going on and on. Plus, due to the journal layout, it isn't too fun to read because it's an awful transition-er. I really dislike it. Once again, IT'S SO BORING.
This is a good book, but more of a book for those slow, lazy dog days of summer (which is to say you would probably enjoy it more if you read it on those days when you have nothing to do but relax) There could've been more depth to some of the characters, as i felt that most of the characters other than Nick, Mr. Bootie, Tarheto, and Mr. Banks appearances were too few and far between for them to develop fully. Other than that, the climax, although slightly exciting, could have been more, well, climatic and nerve wracking, as the real trouble was a bit short lived, but interesting and funny things happen throughout the book, for example, the "shark" that the crew were eating at one point. I also learned about the dunking of new crew members once the ship crossed over the Equinoctial Line (The Equator) So to sum it up, this book is a good read, informational, but also humorous and intriguing.

OK, not her best work, and I am slightly disapointed that Nick never stands up the Bootie, (sorry, possibly a bit of a spoiler) and I would have liked a bit more action.
uninteresting and boring
This book was one of the challenge summer reading books for my school but I can honestly say that it was easy read, boring, and uninteresting. I came to this conclusion after reading the first 2 chapters and I would not suggest this book to any of my peers.
i am sorry to say but this book was the whole down point of my summer. i had to read this for summer reading me and my whole grade agree this book is boring
