Reviews
"This page-turning and atmospheric adventure story also teaches fascinating science skills. . . . A superb tale of survival and courage."--Kirkus Reviews

"[A] richly imaginative survival adventure. . . . the unrelenting drama of their immediate peril makes for a nail-biting read, sure to satisfy fans of Paulsen's Hatchet." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Vividly wrought, scientifically grounded text layers facts to develop the protagonists' plight. . . . Lawrence (Deadman's Castle) draws from his experience fighting forest fires; that expertise informs harrowing descriptions of the out-of-control blaze, creating an elucidating and hopeful portrait of grief amid the natural world."--Publishers Weekly
