The Life of Pi by Yann Martel
This is a story about a16-year-old Indian boy named Pi, when he and his zoo-keeping family come to a decision to resettle themselves as well as a few animals to Canada, Pi winds up stranded on a lifeboat with a hyena, a zebra, an orangutan, and a Bengal tiger named 'Richard Parker.'
It seems to me that the book is about a person's assessment of faith . . . .
