Format: Kindle Edition
So glad this is a series. I'm always looking for books to hook my boys into reading (girls will enjoy it, too). This will appeal to those who loved the "I Survived" series, though these seem to be written for a more mature crowd (10-14).

The characters were real. Some of them stepped up and others sunk to new lows in the face of adversity. The setting made the action easy to follow. Survival Tips...in case you're ever in this situation...were icing on the cake.

I'm anxious to read the rest of this series.

More story line needed more detail. Longer book. What was wrote kept you interested. But not a page turner sorry.

This is a good book. It is the continuation of a series called Stay Alive. It is a good book for a 4th grader and a 5th grader to read.

I really enjoyed the first Stay Alive, Crash, and was very excited to get this one and start reading it. Unfortunately, I don't think this was one was nearly as good as the first. The characters, plot and setting in this one felt thin and rushed. The plot also required a lot more suspension of disbelief than in the first book. However, I think the target audience of 3-5 grade will still enjoy this and the survival tips that are interspersed with the story.
