The first thing I realized when I read Wave by Eric Walters is that the book is based on a true story. This book is about a Tsunami that crashed in Phuket and surrounding areas in Thailand. Over 120,000 people lost their lives. I like how the author made the reader picture what was happening in the book by putting lots of detail and explaining everything well. Also I enjoyed the fact that the book was in two points of view, first the brother's, then the sister's. In the brother's point of view he explained what happened while he was there and what he felt. Then during the sister's point of view they continued the story by saying what she felt when she heard the news and how she looked to see if she could find her mother, father, and her brother. I loved that the author put so much emotion into just 208 pages. He captured an event and put it into something that people won't forget.
