Personal Narrative (fiction), 3,168 words, Level X (Grade 5), Lexile 890L

Crew member Will Reynolds tells of the voyage of The Endeavour from England to the Pacific Ocean to map the coasts of New Zealand and Australia. Along the way, the ship runs aground on a coral reef. If not for the imaginative thinking of one of the crew, all might have perished. Instead, the ship was kept afloat until Captain James Cook found a safe harbor where repairs could be made. Told in first-person narrative, The Reef is a suspenseful, engaging story.
