Recently, students in Mrs. Basham's seventh period class read The Voyage of the Frog by Gary Paulsen. This book is about a young boy whose uncle dies and leaves his sailboat to him. His uncle's last request is for the boy to scatter his ashes when he sails and can no longer see land. The boy, David sails out and is caught in a storm after he scatters the ashes. It is a story of survival.
