I haven't read one of these books in years. Lost in the Wild is a choose-your-path book-an adventure book with dozens of possible endings depending on the decisions you make throughout the story. You are the main character. You and your sister Kate (story written in the second-person POV) are on a camping trip with your family. But when you and Kate get caught in a terrible thunderstorm your struggle for survival begins. And what an adventure it is! My kids and I had so much fun reading this story together. We also learned a lot about surviving in the outdoors where there are bears and wolves. We made it to the end after dying...three times? Yes, we had to retrace out paths several times and try to figure out how to survive. The first night we read it my husband joined us as we were deciding which four items from the list of ten we should pack into our backpack. They all seemed essential to us, especially me, the city girl who would bring everything I possibly could. I am so not an outdoors person. At one point in the story we made a wrong choice and ended up getting rescued but not the sister. But then at another time, we also ended up getting rescued and our sister did too and we failed to see why it was different the second time around when the circumstances seemed the same. Apart from this, the choices we made really helped us see the value in survival knowledge and preparedness. We found this book exciting and suspenseful and we finished it in two sittings. But of course, one could re-read this book many times and always have a different adventure exploring the various choices along the way. It's a great book to read as a family as each member can give their input and then decide together what to do. It's an ideal book for both boys and girls and also for the reluctant reader. Both my 9 year-old girl and my 6 year-old boy loved it. My son actually said to me that it's now one of his favourite books.
