Braun, Melinda Stranded, 262 pages. Simon, 2015. $11. Language: R (110 + swears, 3 ‘f’); Violence: PG; Mature Content: PG-13 (undescribed naked, innuendos).
Since her little sister’s death in a car crash she feels responsible for, Emma has not been able to find peace. She decides to join a wilderness group for a two week adventure in the backcountry, hoping to distract herself and possibly find clarity. Due to tragic circumstances, only four members of the group are left alive to either wait for rescue or find their way out to safety.
Think either Hatchet (Paulsen) or Downriver (Hobbs), but written with a lot more swearing and mature content. This is definitely appeal to those particular readers but at an older level.
