A plane crashes on a deserted island, in the Pacific Ocean. The only survivors is a group of boys. With no parents around, one boy, Ralph, calls a meeting; using a shell (a conch). Ralph is voted as leader. One boy dies in a forest fire.
There are no parents!!
Chapters 3 and 4
Oh no, the fire is out!
Ralph becomes leader and orders them to build a fire. Jack is put in charge to watch the fire, but he goes hunting instead. While Jack goes hunting, a ship comes by. The ship doesn't see any fire, so the boys aren't rescued.
Chapters 5 and 6
As time passes, Ralph realizes they need to be responsible, so he talks to them about storing water, building shelters, but most importantly keeping the fire alive. The group talks about how they think a beast had killed the first boy that died. The boys don't treat Piggy, who one of Ralph's friends with respect, because he is overweight. Jack practically bullies Piggy.
"It's time some people knew they've got to keep quiet and leave deciding to the rest of us."
