CM: Canadian Review of Materials

"...plenty of dialogue and the pace is lively and fast. Snippets of survival knowledge...add realism to the story as well as give the reader useful information."

"...a good independent read for a beginning chapter book reader. There is lots of action and suspense, but not too scary for the novice reader."
