Description

Jessica loves her yearly backpacking trip with her father, but this year everything has changed. This year Jessica has to share her vacation with her new stepmother and her spoiled new stepsister, Amy. Jessica tries to salvage her holiday by sneaking off for a day hike alone, but Amy follows. Jessica is certain that Amy will ruin the day. Amy rises to the challenge of the rigourous hike and Jessica learns that Amy is not as spoiled as she thought. When Amy is injured and night falls, Jessica must face the challenge of hiking through bear country in the dark.

Editorial Review

"The conclusion is dramatic, but not overly so, and the emotional resolution rings very true. Spoiled Rotten is an excellent, action-packed read that would work well for a reluctant reader. It takes its place alongside the other excellent titles in this series."
