I received a copy of Stay Alive 1 - Crash from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
Description From The Publisher:
Stranded in the middle of nowhere, you have to fight to survive!
When the members of Junior Action News Team crash land in the Alaskan backwoods, one thing is clear: not everyone is going to survive. No cell phones. No internet. Their supplies are limited, as is their knowledge of the wilderness. Part of the group wants to wait it out. Other wants to search for help. But above all they must stay alive!
Read the title, see the cover and scan the blurb. Afterwards you will not want to put this book down. My nephew Michael (age 12) chose this book for us to share after I told him I had it to review. He, his brother Josh (age 9) and cousin Tara (age 11) each got a copy and so our adventure began. As is custom in my family of readers I have the younger readers choose a book and then we talk on the phone or the come visit and we discuss the book. "Stay Alive #1 - Crash was a success for all of them. Josh and Tara claimed the groups pooling together for survival was the best part of the story. Michael liked the tips and the ever changing point of view so that you learned a little bit about all the people in the book. I in turn enjoyed listening to them as they discussed the book with me on the phone. As my family is spread across the country, books are a way of keeping us connected.
Thanks to Scholastic for a series that encourage young readers to spread the wings of their imagination and fly. My rating of "Stay Alive #1 - Crash" is 4.75 out of 5 stars.
