Reviews

"Ms. Bledsoe ably conveys the children's competence--they know how to hunt and bivouac--but also the youthful limits of their strengths and capabilities, both in the wild and out of it."--The Wall Street Journal

"Nuanced, character-driven action." --Kirkus Reviews

"This adventure story is all about family and survival, and Willa shows amazing strength in supporting her brothers and keeping them all alive. The straightforward narration makes the story accessible for upper elementary, and the action, issues, and themes make it suitable for middle school readers as well." --School Library Connection

"Combining elements of survivalism, resilience in the face of adversity, and adaptation to the unknown, Bledsoe skillfully weaves a tale of adventure and coming of age on the Alaskan frontier. . . . Bledsoe makes Willa a likable, relatable, and strong lead who will appeal to readers of a similar age."--School Library Journal
