“Getting Air,” by Dan Gutman

“Getting Air,” by Dan Gutman is one of the most ridiculous books that I have ever read.
Book Cover of Getting Air by Dan Gutman
Jimmy, David, and Henry are skateboarders on their way to California to compete in the X Games. But their plans are ruined when terrorists hijack their flight. The friends manage to defeat four grownup terrorists and then crash land the plane in Canada. The three survivors must find food, water, and shelter until rescuers come to their aid.

I was highly disappointed with “Getting Air.” The whole book felt like a cheap “Hatchet” knockoff, but the survival aspect was less realistic and the characters less profound. But that wasn’t the worst of it. I really had to laugh when the three boys used part of the plane wreck to set up a half pipe so that they could do skateboard tricks. “Getting Air” is definitely aimed at the youth audience, but even compared with other Junior Fiction books, it is lacking in plot and realism.
