Karen and John Wilson live with their father in a small town which is called Rouali. Their father has been missing for two weeks. When they receive a letter from him, they realize that he’s in great danger and they decide to rescue him. They look at the map and they find the town where their father is. This town is called Golatta.To get there they use the help of Billy Baily, one of their father’s friends. He agrees to fly to Golatta with them. Ten minutes after they have taken off, a bad storm breaks out.
All of a sudden, Billy realizes that he has made a mistake and he does not fly over the town of Golatta. Some people shoot and kill him so it is Karen’s turn to fly the plane. Unfortunately, the plane runs out of fuel and Karen and John have to use parachutes. Karen’s parachute is torn but she manages to open another parachute. When they land, they find their father’s diary. Karen opens it and reads a secret code which John uses to open the door of the room where their father is. They both get into the room and there is their father….
* John -> he’s especially good at maths
* Karen -> she’s able to solve puzzles and riddles…
Both children are courageous, they are close to each other and they care about
* Bill -> he’s stupid and ignorant.
* The kids’ father ->l he loves adventures.
The most important event
My opinion is that the most important event is when Billy Baily is killed and Karen is forced to fly the plane… She is too young to do it and the reader wonders whether she will make it or not.
