Diary of a Wimpy Kid Series

Title – Life of Pi

Author – Yann Martel

Penguin Paperback

This Man Booker prize-winning novel follows the adventures of Piscine ‘Pi’ Patel after he survives a shipwreck, and is left stranded on a life boat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. And that isn’t even the worst part. He has to share the boat with a hyena, an orangutan, a zebra and a Royal Bengal Tiger.

Martel effortlessly weaves together the moments that comprise the next 227 days – the period Pi is stuck at sea – to tell a compelling tale that will definitely leave you thinking. More profound than it seems at first glance, Life of Pi is a must-read for teenagers and adults alike.
