Shahan, Sherry. Death Mountain

Shahan, Sherry. Death Mountain. Peachtree, 2005 [1-56145-353-6]

Erin is going to visit her mother who she hasn’t seen in over a year when she loses her bus ticket and ends up pairing up with an unlikely friend in the mountains when they get lost and have to survive on a six-day ordeal. I felt the situation was a little contrived and some of the survival narrative unreal, but it is a good survival-suspense story for the kids who like that kind of genre. This 201 page book is a quick read.. maybe a high-interest type of book for your lower readers in the middle school.
