Grade 6-9–Three teens are excited to be taken on as junior snowboard and skiing guides with Sam's Adventure Tours, but their first training expedition doesn't turn out quite as expected. Just after being deposited on top of a mountain, Jake, Peter, and Moses witness a helicopter crash and rescue a 15-year-old survivor named Fiona. When bad weather triggers an avalanche, they must work together to stay alive. Fiona is a world-class snowboarder and the boys have survival training, but it will take all of their skills to fend off one disaster after another as they try to reach town. In this second book in the series, the characters begin to be developed well enough for readers to empathize with them: Moses reflects on his father's background in a residential school; Peter begins to understand the difference between being a leader and just showing off; and Jake reveals the source of his insecurities. Filled with danger and survival tips, this fast-paced story will appeal to reluctant readers and adventure lovers.–Betsy Fraser, Calgary Public Library, Canada
