London Carter is as spoiled as can be - skating through school and family life with her head set only on clothes and popularity.  After her bad choices land her in jail though, her father intervenes finally and sends her off to Honduras with a student group to help a village.  When the village is attacked by guerillas, London finds herself running through the jungle with only Oliver, a boy from her school who has nothing but contempt for London’s pampered princess behavior.  With bad blood between them, dangerous animals, dangerous fauna, and the most dangerous creature of all -- humans -- between them and rescue, what hope do they have of surviving?

Bring up your Amazon account to purchase this for your library.  Jensen has written a solid action-filled adventure. I would heartily recommend this to students who enjoyed Hatchet or any other survival novel.
