Airborn by Kenneth Oppel,
This review is from: Airborn (Paperback)
When Matt Cruse, cabin boy of the airship Aurora spots a hot air balloon driftng aimlessly towards the ship, his life is turned upside down. The balloon contains an old, dying man named Benjamin Molloy, who on his travels made many observational notes on some strange creatures that he called 'cloud cats'. A year later, Kate de Vries, the man's granddaughter boards the airship. Pirates attack the Aurora and she crashes onto an island in the middle of the sea. There, Matt and Kate set about scavenging for the cloud cats, amidst a whole pile of trouble that they must dig themselves out of if they want to live. I highly reccommend this book to absolutely anyone. It is fabulous and I don't see why I'm the first to review it!
