Blood Mountain

Written by James Preller

You will be drawn into this story. The characters are realistic and authentic. Grace, a 13 year-old sister, and Carter, an 11 year-old brother, go on a day hike to Blood Mountain with their father and Sitka, the faithful dog. They are excited and have planned well, but the unfortunate happens. This one-day hike turns into to a six-day struggle for survival for the two children and their dog. The result is a page turning adventure. The story moves quickly and keeps you in suspense until the end. I enjoyed the book. Fans of Gary Paulsen’s books will likely be hooked from page one.
