"Matt and Mike are best friends, just two working-class guys trying to earn some money in Montauk for the summer. When they meet Driana, JoJo, and Stef, three friends who live a much different life of privilege, Matt and Mike find themselves in a sticky situation where temptation rivals sensibility. Worlds collide when the group ventures out to sea aboard a small boat that Stef sneaks out from her dad's dock. As the waves rise and the fragile vessel weakens, things go horribly wrong. Adrift at sea for days, who will have what it takes to survive?"-- provided by publisher.

Yeah, I understand the book is written for young and immature readers, but more's the pity.
The ONLY thing "terrifying" in this book, is the constant and never ending stream of one untruth of physics, and physical & psychological human behavior, after another. (e.g. "all concussions cause fluid build up, in which the pressure has to be relieved by drilling a hole in the skull" or "1 out of 25 people is a sociopath" or "eating raw bird will make you sick and kill you" -Good thing Louis Zamperini didn't know that, since it kept him and his mates alive!, etc., etc.) There are so many, and it's constant, that listing them all would pretty much mean rewriting the book here.
If you're going to try to scare teenagers with "facts", do it by letting them know how much misinformation (i.e. lies) is expounded through cultural media.
