About the Author

Melinda Braun grew up in Wisconsin and received her Bachelor's degrees in Psychology and English from the University of Minnesota. Currently, she lives in the Twin Cities with her husband and daughter. Although she loves hiking and camping, she does not enjoy portaging canoes. Stranded is her first novel.

Reviews

Braun intersperses the nail-biting suspense with humor and depth. Her realistically varied characters never fall into stock characterization, and shifting points of view, including that of a mountain lion, add compelling perspective and drive the plot forward. With accessible, propulsive writing, this survival adventure tale will be a hit with a broad audience.
--Booklist
Braun's cinematic descriptions place readers in the middle of the action, while touches of humor and contemplation about life and family issues will keep them interested in the characters.--School Library Journal
Braun is talented at describing suspenseful threats, such as the steady approach of a mountain lion that realizes that injury makes a human easy prey. Just the ticket for readers who like hearty doses of suspenseful adventure.--Kirkus
