At B & N Reads Biller tagged five books you definitely shouldn’t buy for your next flight, including:
Hatchet, by Gary Paulsen

This classic of young adult survival tales, written by the master of wilderness adventure and coming of age stories, follows 13-year-old Brian after the single-engine plane he’s taking to see his father crashes in the Canadian wilderness. He’s stranded alone for over a month, with nothing but the clothes on his back and—you got it—a hatchet given to him by his mother before the trip. A recipient of the Newbery Honor, Hatchet is a great book to give a young person in your life…just not right before they hop on a plane.
