The Cay by Theodore Taylor

Shipwrecked on a tiny Caribbean island Philip must overcome his prejudice towards Timothy the old black sailor who becomes the key to his survival This is one of the best The Cay is a book about a boy named Phillip Enright living in the time of a world war II 1942 When German U boats surround the island of Curacao his mother who is frightened wants to go back to the Netherlands and take her son with her Her husband who has to work was not able to leave Phillips mother complained and eventually won the argument Phillip and his mother say goodbye to Phillips father and they sail away on a ship The ship becomes shipwrecked and Phillip and his mother get thrown off the boat A black man named Timothy rescues Philip At first Phillip doesn t like Timothy because of what his mother always says about black people but as they are stranded together for a while he grows onto him and learns about him and at last starts to like him The main character is Phillip who doesn t want to leave his home his school and his father just because of the fact that his mother is scared something bad might happen to them He is eleven years old and has brown hair and brown eyes Phillip at first is excited about the fact that there is a war going on because he has always heard of them but never seen one He doesn t know what conseuences lay ahead and doesn t know why his mother wants them to move somewhere until the war is over He is stubborn at first but through the book he changes and becomes responsible and obeys commands he is given This book tells us that people grow up and when the time comes they understand what may happen and that s what changes them It s a story of friendship and trust and faithfulness Timothy didn t have to save Phillip he could have saved himself and left Phillip to die but he didn t and that s what counts the most Another example is when Phillip became blind Timothy was Phillips eyes and again he didn t have to be if he didn t want to be but he cared for Phillip and helped him through his times of need I think this novel is interesting because Philip seems like a real boy with real situations but I didn t think that it was really realistic when with all the bad things happening at once Phillip turns blind I know that can happen when you stair at the sun but you would think that that would just be the worst of luck I think that this would be a worst care scenario and I think that it s almost exaggerating the story a little too much I like the book a lot because even though the plot wasn t so realistic sometimes people want something like that once in a while It just happened to be that time when I was craving for imagination and that s what I got from the book I can be stubborn sometimes and not want to do something that I don t have to do or do something that I m not supposed to do But I change with the help of the people that care for meI would definitely recommend this book to people who like adventure and creativity
