Amos and Manny never really gave a whole lot of thought into how they would get off this island once they were done with their business, did they? Well, I can't blame them, considering they don't appear to have given a whole lot of thought to their plan to steal the Captain's map and abscond with the treasure in general.
But then again, the best laid plans of mice and men also often go awry. I read that in a book about shooting your best friend in the back of the head. I mean there was more to the book than that, but that's the only part anybody remembers. I remember a lot more. Mostly the other parts where people (or a dog) died in the book.
What book was that, you ask? Oh, it was the best story I ever read. It was called Animorphs and it was specifically the one where the kid turned into an animorph of a guy shooting his best friend in the back of the head. I can't seem to find that one anymore but if I find a copy I'll start renting it out to any reader who e-mails me asking for it.
